Lisa Ross is an award winning writer and Fine Art photographer based in San Diego.
Originally from Los Angeles, she holds a Bachelors and Masters degree from the University of Southern California. Her formative training in the art of photography was from the prestigious Hamilton High Photography program in LA where she was greatly encouraged by Ansel Adams and Bob Willoughby who awarded her top honors.
Considered a master printer, she is able to capture the feel of a painting while retaining the immediacy of the photograph, printing images shot in the world’s most visually intriguing places on large canvases using archival pigment ink from either scanned negatives or digital images.
Lisa has photographed in all seven continents, over 100 countries, producing about 25 works each year from thousands of impressions. Each place presents its own colors, lighting and therefore mood. Images are carefully chosen for their technical clarity and compatibility with the canvas medium so that the resulting work blurs the line between traditional photography and painting.
She has journeyed to the heights of Mt. Kilimanjaro and the Peruvian Andes, the icy blue vastness of Antarctica, and the orange-larched expanse of Russia Trans-Siberia. She has circumnavigated South American, cruised the Mekong, Irrawaddy and Amazon Rivers, traversed the textured countries of North Africa, Central Asia and the Middle East, and touched down in the great world capitals.
Lisa is very excited to be joining the great group of artists represented by LGOCA. She is also the artist/owner of Imaging the World Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Formerly, she was represented by the Randall M. Hasson Gallery and the Ordover Gallery, both in Solana Beach California and Santa Fe. Her work has been exhibited at the San Diego Museum of Natural History, the San Diego Art Institute-Museum of the Living Artist, Center for Contemporary Art Sacramento, the La Jolla Art Association, the Art of Digital Show at the Lyceum Theater and San Diego ArtWalk.
