From her studio in picturesque Sedona, Arizona, Lisa Danielle has been crafting luminous still- life paintings for 35 years, bringing to light centuries of cultures of the Western frontier she loves.

Surrounded by historic ranches, Indian lands, and world-class museums, Lisa favors object that are otherwise inaccessible to most, visually preserving moments in time. Cliff dwelling ruins are with within hiking or horseback riding distance, and inspiration is virtually everywhere in her beloved red rock country.

Lisa’s ramblings, however, have led to more distant historic venues, from Montana’s Virginia City, Fort Benton, Crow Agency and many battlefields, to the back country of Death Valley, looking for traces of long past events. The inspiration given her has allowed Lisa to continue sharing her vision through Leanin’ Tree Publishing, major western art magazines, and the seven galleries representing her work throughout the West.

Lisa Danielle paintings garner museum recognition and awards, including “Best Painting” at this show in 2014, but her greatest delight is individuals making a personal connection to a piece, taking  home that glowing bit of history, and adding it to their own timeline, thus preserving the continuous tradition of storytelling, from rock art and cave paintings, to the West of the present.
