Annalisa Lawrence, known as the Saltwater Woman paints with a confident intensity, creating images of forgotten days by the beach with her brush and rare soulful energy. From her home studio, using acrylic and mixed media, she chronicles her experiences as a mother, surfer, and traveller, into stripped back images, with the nagging suggestion that something inherent in the human condition binds us all together.
A finalist in the 2020 Blackstone Gallery blue works on paper, featuring in Art Edit magazine, exhibiting in joint exhibitions and local cafes, Annalisa is committed to the process of creating by honouring the energetic direction of what’s within. An art school drop out, not willing to follow a traditional path, but a student of life, who believes the adventure is in the process.
