I create in celebration of love and life.
Lisa McLymont, a self-identified multi media sculptor, has a creative drive rooted in the influences of her father’s love of independence and music, her mother’s love of creative expression and spirituality, and their shared love of beauty. Lisa’s art is mainly expressed through portrait paintings and sculpted metals, though she prefers allowing her curiosity to explore many directions knowing that each new experience provides insight while creating work that connects past and future worlds.
Lisa McLymont was born in Manhattan, NY and has called Columbus, Ohio home since the age of ten. Formally educated in graphic design and visual communications, McLymont’s career as a self-taught, multi-disciplinary artist includes forays into sculpture, metal-work, jewelry design, drawing and painting. Her ongoing series – The Universe Tribe – is focused on identity and inspired by the powerful style of protest posters, the movement of the seasons, and the soft mystery of artists Leo & Diane Dillon, Georgia O’Keefe and Susan Seddon Boulet, from whom she draws inspiration.
“I enjoy how portraits move people
to talk with each other and see new perspectives.”
Lisa M. McLymont is a graduate of The Ohio State University, where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Design through the Department of Design and Visual Communications. She was a 2010 Fellowship Recipient of The Ohio State University Arts Initiative Fellowship for Emerging Artists.
In addition to creating an on-going body of portrait paintings, McLymont works as a full time as a graphic designer for CAPA.
She has served as an adjunct faculty member at Columbus College of Art and Design and Ohio Dominican University, both in Columbus, Ohio, and has been a visiting artist at Denison University in Granville, Ohio. A former member of the Ohio Art League and the Columbus Society for Communicating Arts, McLymont is one of the inaugural coordinators of the Greater Columbus Arts Council’s Columbus Open Studio & Stage event, The Art and Artists Of Ohio, an online community, and a founding member of Black, Out, & Proud.
McLymont’s work has been in numerous group and solo exhibits in the Central Ohio area, and working toward more exhibit opportunities outside of Ohio. Currently, she is focused on massaging color into wood grain, further building her body of visual art.
Lisa is represented by Contemporary Art Matters.
Looking for Coppercurious? My wearable art production is on permanent hiatus. There will be some wirework art compositions made in the future though! My creativity is not done with this material.
Thanks for your interest!
