"Flora and Fauna: Art by Lisa Baechtle
Artist Lisa Baechtle works primarily in watercolour, creating bright images that draw inspiration from flora and fauna as well as the artist’s own introspection and self-awareness. Through a somewhat intuitive process, Lisa creates paintings that combine an obvious love for nature with a sense of the supernatural.
I really enjoy the colour palette that runs through Lisa’s entire gallery of Wild Soul Paintings. Lisa’s painting style is one that shows a certain amount of reverence for the slight imperfections and blurred edges that are an inherent part of the medium, yet the artist still creates each work with a great eye for detail. Lisa paints her wildlife subjects with a beautifully controlled hand, while allowing space for wild abandon in her colourful, blended backgrounds.
Lisa also produces custom pet portraits, on a commission basis. The artist’s skill with fine detail really shines in these pieces, where the artist manages to capture not only the physical features of a pet, but the pet’s personality."

"Let me just add, that I really enjoyed that class at the Gathery, and all the elements you brought to it – from the opening meditation, and the beautiful and poignant poetry, to your music selection and dance. But most of all I appreciated your guidance and those gentle and not-so-gentle nudges to break out of old patterns, play, explore, and loosen up without attachment to outcome. That is so essential to entering the creative space. You really rocked that class, Lisa!!! Loved it. Thank you!"

"Lisa has a wonderful eye and visual sense of the interplay of color and form. I have 3 watercolors of horses by Lisa that I treasure greatly --- one is a portrait of my horse Kinscem when he was a foal. And Lisa has also done some interior painting for me. She is a great color and project consultant and will take your recommendations. But what you ought to do is --- let her walk around and take in your space and aesthetic and then ask her opinion! Unless you are very very good, her ideas about anything to do with painting from fine art to interior finishes are probably better than your's!"

"Lisa is an excellent artist who has worked tirelessly to perfect her art. She is an excellent person who gives of herself to others and 100% to her art. Owning several of her paintings has made my home and office a celebration in fine art."
