I’m an acrylic painter in Fredericton NB, who loves bright colours and working with various mediums, to add textures to my work. My abstract paintings are inspired by my love of music as well as combinations of colours.

Instragram: Lise Dumas Richard
Spending summers on the beach with sand on her feet, and winters surrounded in snow up to her chin, Lise Dumas Richard grew up in Bathurst New Brunswick. Fredericton became her permanent residence, after having lived in metropolitan cities as well as smaller cities across Canada. No matter where she has lived, she likes to explore all that the area has to offer.
Lise studied Fashion and Fabric Surface Design at the College of Craft and Design in Fredericton, NB. She later graduated with a degree in Fashion Merchandising Communication from Ryerson University in Toronto. She worked as a graphic and web artist full time for a few years, and in 2004, she began offering volunteer art workshops for children in schools. One of her first big volunteer projects was in 2009, when she prepared mini workshops for every classroom at École des Bâtisseurs. The resulting artwork was used to decorate for the Christmas concert. 550 kids participated in this project.
In the fall of 2010, Lise began to teach art, as well as focus full time on her own artwork, working independently as a painter. Her painting style is fun and whimsical. She paints with textures and bright colours, which all reflects her positive and easy going attitude. Lise loves to snowboard and travel with her family, and of course, paint in her studio with her dog “Surfer” by her side.
One of her favorite quotes: “Leap and the net will appear.”
