Lisa MacNamara



Fascinated during childhood by the photography of people
and their stories in the pages of LIFE and LOOK
magazines, MacNamara developed a deep interest in
visualizing the human body itself as an expression of
individual histories. She explored this theme in drawing and
collage assemblages. “We hold experiences within our body,
even at a cellular level,” she says, “there’s a feeling of energy
that tells those stories.”

After early educational pursuits in biology and veterinary
medicine, she returned to her expressive art interests with a
multi-year career in the decorative arts business, with an
emphasis on the psychological influences of color chroma, hue
and value, becoming certified member of the International
Association of Color Consultants and Designers.

MacNamara has degrees in Painting and Sculpture, post-
graduate in Psychology and Painting, and in 2021,

MacNamara was accepted into the FAU Graduate Painting
Program and is the recipient of a grant of a full teaching

Lives and works in Jupiter, Florida.
