Roberta Aylward

My work is an exploration of abstract forms that have an intrinsic connection to the natural world. I do not begin my paintings with an end in mind; rather, my process begins by collecting disparate elements from my drawings, painting studies and found materials. Each piece begins with a basic geometric structure. Growing from these left-brain plans, however, are unexpected pools of color, variable textures, and uninvited forms. With each piece I strive to realize a balance between the geometric and the organic. Ultimately, my compositions reflect the path of my inspirations and observations.
--Roberta Aylward


Roberta received her B.F.A. in Painting in 1991 from The College of Santa Fe in New Mexico and has lived for the last 10 years in Portland, Oregon, where she works full-time in her in-home studio. She has been included in biennial exhibits at the Tacoma Art Museum (Northwest Biennial: Building Wise, 2004) and the Oregon College of Art and Craft (The Inquisitive Object: A Biennial Review of NW Art & Craft,1999). Most recently her drawings were exhibited in Portland Modern’s fourth edition, Saturation.



Lisa DeJohn

Originally a midwest girl. Born in Detroit Michigan and raised in Barrington Illinois. My mother, an artist, encouraged my creativity every day. My father, an avid outdoorsman, took me on many fishing trips and hikes. Always insisting that I look closely at the details in nature and that I sit and listen to the sounds of it.

I studied fine arts and sciences at the University of Oregon and then moved to Portland Oregon for where I lived for ten years as a working artist. In June of 2005 I moved to a rural area in the North Shore of Massachusetts where I have continued my career as a painter, designer and mixed media artist. I am continually inspired by the natural beauty around my home.
