PSA, IAPS- Master Circle
Lisa Stauffer received her Master’s in Design (University Of Minnesota, Minneapolis) and studied Illustration at Parson’s School of Design (NYC). She enhances her education by taking workshops from nationally recognized painters whose work inspires her. She has worked and taught in a wide variety of media, now primarily painting in soft pastel with a special focus on painting en plein air to indulge her fascination with light and color in Minnesota’s beautiful north shore landscape. Lisa was awarded Master Circle status by the International Association Of Pastel Societies in 2011. She was awarded the H.K. Holbein Award at the Pastel Society Of America Show at the National Arts Club in New York City, September 2010, and the Pastel Painters Of Cape Cod Award in 2012. Lisaʼs paintings were chosen
each of these years by the Director of the Butler Institute Of American Art, Youngstown, Ohio, for inclusion in the annual exhibit, American Pastels.
Lisa was juried into the Pastel Society Of America and awarded Signature status in 2012. Her work has been featured in articles in PleinAir Magazine, Pastel Journal, Stephen Dohertyʼs book, The Art Of Plein Air Painting and in two PBS specials on painting.
