Lisa Riehl was raised in BC and has been seriously painting since 2004, when she moved to Victoria, BC. Inspired by the dramatic landscapes around her, she has translated her passion for hiking, surfing and her love of nature to canvas. Lisa’s landscape paintings reflect her fascination with nature. Vancouver Island is an amazingly beautiful place with gorgeous scenery all around – mountains, ocean & forests! It’s easy for Lisa to drive for only 15 minutes and feel like she is in the middle of nowhere. She goes almost everywhere with her camera (usually hiking with her dog Lucy) and is always taking photos of scenes that inspire her. Once home in her studio, she uses these photos as references for her brightly coloured and textured acrylic paintings.
Whiffen Spit in Sooke is a beautiful place to relax and unwind. I lived in Sooke for 10 years and this was my favourite place to take my dog for a walk, no matter what the weather! Sunny or stormy, we loved going there. This painting is the view from the spit looking back towards where Sooke Harbour House is.
