Artist Focus: Lisa Gleim

A focus on the artwork of Lisa Gleim

Artist Lisa Gleim, Atlanta native and Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts graduate, has long found her inspiration outdoors in its ever-changing light and atmosphere. Her current narrative realism wildlife work, instantly wildly applauded and widely received, is made spellbinding by her evident and engaging passion for animals, conservation, travel and storytelling. Have I Ever Steered You Wrong?, pastel on Texas maps, 18 x 36"

Gleim’s first successful career as a portrait artist expanded into genres she knew well. The Lowcountry marshes, coastal and marine landscapes and their inhabitants were quickly noticed by gallerists such as Cheryl Newby and Beverly McNeil, and sought after by collectors. Her portraits of water dogs made an especially big splash.I’ll Listen, But We Go When I Say, pastel on Grand Canyon maps, 24 x 30"

Her work also earned her signature member status with American Women Artists (AWA), American Society of Marine Artists, Artists for Conservation and other prestigious art associations. One of her first wildlife narratives appearing in an AWA exhibition was acquired by the Booth Western Art Museum for its permanent collection. Another, What Hive We Here, brought spirited bidding at the 2021 C.M. Russell Museum annual auction.The Bear & The Bees, pastel on national parks maps, 40 x 30"

In her newest wildlife series, Gleim sets subjects against various ephemera, including vintage national park maps. These subtle backdrops add historic information, expanding the story of each subject. This series is represented by McLarry Fine Art, Paderewski Fine Art and Montana Trails Gallery.

Gleim says, “I hope viewers will linger and ponder the role and character of a long horn, a burro, a bear…beyond the particular framed moment.” —
