Lisa Matrundola was born the youngest of five children in Montreal, Quebec. Her parents immigrated to Canada from Italy and England in the late 1950â€™s. Self-sufficiency, hard work and attention to detail were modeled as cornerstones of success. As an adolescent, these attributes were further articulated through dance and the study of representational drawing and painting. After earning a BFA from the University of Georgia, Lisa worked in Atlanta as a graphic designer, illustrator and art director. Amid raising two children, she established a custom cake bakery, renovated and managed several rental properties and taught group fitness classes at a local gym, but something was missing.
Lisa entered the 2016 Artfieldâ€™s exhibition, where she received one of ten Merit Awards. This recognition ignited a passion to explore themes of female identity through painting and sculpture. Lisa completed her MFA in Painting at The Savannah College of Art & Design in 2021. Her work encourages conversations about our collective survival and coexistence on planet earth.
