Lisa Elkins

This is the second year for Lisa Watkins Elkins to be on the Round about Art Tour.  Although oil painting is her primary art  interest, Lisa has a few contemporary and abstract acrylic paintings as well as some mixed media. 

“The beautiful thing about art is how you begin to look at the world differently.  In the past I would have merely taken for granted that a sunny day is beautiful.  But now, my goal is to transfer all the colors, textures and shadows onto a canvas in a visually pleasing interpretation. I am striving to learn those elements, like brush stroke and paint selection, that effect the emotion of the art.  The joy is definitely in the journey!”

Lisa holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock with a communication major and a music minor. She, and her husband John, are thankful to have raised a family in Arkadelphia.  They are blessed with four grandchildren.

Farrell Ford is her mentor and oil painting instructor.
