Born in Venezuela to American parents, artist/instructor Lisa Coddington, grew up in the American suburbs with an appreciation for exploring the outdoors. Now residing in Santa Fe, New Mexico the artist is surrounded with new views of art forms familiar to her from favorite childhood folk art gifts her parents brought from travels abroad. The art objects cultivated her appreciation for global aesthetic diversity, and introduced to her a visual language that transcends cultural barriers.

New archival limited edition prints of New Mexico Wildflower watercolor series of 25 are now available @$225/each. Hedge hog cactus (shown) available in 12" x 12" print and 5 x 7 cards. See Botanical Card section. These paintings illustrate some of the common and uncommon New Mexico blooming plants.

Painting Commission compliment,
"I received the standing cypress painting.  To say the least, I am very pleased.  The painting is lovely.  The detailed flowers, the different creatures, the pencil drawings - all contribute to an interesting and beautiful painting.  Thank you for taking on this project.  I will proudly display this painting of one of my favorite wildflowers."
