Lisa's Style

Lisa has a skill for combining beautiful colour pairings with minimalist mark-making, creating organic abstractions that capture the essence of different seasons, scents, memories and flora and fauna that we associate with the countryside. Her work has a soothing and calming effect on the viewer, allowing us to each call to mind a different experience or mood brought about by colours and plants. Lisa Hardy studied at Winchester School of Art achieving a first class honours degree in Fine Art Textiles. 

 

After moving to London Lisa began a career in fashion where she worked as a PR Director for top luxury brands. After 15 years in London Lisa and her husband moved to Hastings to tap back into their creativity and where the countryside and gardens in East Sussex inspired much of Lisa’s work. Now living in a converted barn in West Wales, she responds to the diverse beauty in all flora with her unique emotive style of painting and drawing.

"The diverse landscape and beauty that surrounds me here in Wales is a constant inspiration. My work aims to capture a feeling, conveyed with loose, expressive, mark making. The work is largely driven by intuition; often I have no plan but just see where the process takes me." - Lisa Hardy

Shop by Collection

Drop 5 - Winter 2022

"This collection is inspired by the beautiful changing light of October. The palette and subtlety of colour is an attempt to evoke a momentary glimpse of the past, of what gradually fades away." - Lisa Hardy, Autumn Serenade

Drop 4 - Autumn 2022

"Always inspired by nature, I visualise imaginary gardens and flowers and to infuse my paintings with a rich emotional resonance. This collection naturally evolved from my last series of paintings but with more focus on layering paint to hide or reveal subtle details." - Lisa Hardy, Last Flower

Drop 3 - High Summer 2022

"I try to capture the fragility of flowers with layers of watercolour. These layers of washes, let form and colour reveal and hide itself, like fleeting moments in time." - Lisa Hardy, The Wild Flowers

Drop 2 - Summer 2022

"I study nature knowing that I am unable to fully grasp or duplicate it. Instead I want to fill the canvas with colour and light and say things that I can’t convey through words alone. Layers of washes, let colour reveal itself with simplified yet ethereal abstraction to immerse yourself within." - Lisa Hardy, A Hundred Petals

Drop 1 - New Year 2022

"I welcome this time of year with a mix of relief and hope, as the days lengthen everything seems possible. Inspiration comes from new signs of life in the garden; from new buds on branches, the first bulbs popping up through leaves, primulas returning to blooming flowers in vases. The beauty of flora is brought to life on paper with playful gestures and washes with hints of detail." - Lisa Hardy, Hope For Spring

Drop 6 - Winter 2021

"Forever Flowers Pt2 is a continuation from my last collection, each piece having a separate identity but yet all connected as part of a larger story. Thin layers of watercolour with subtle shifts in colour and form hint at the fading seasons." - Lisa Hardy, Forever Flowers Pt2

Drop 5 - Autumn 2021

"These watercolour paintings are inspired by my first cutting patch and as always the flower is my muse. Growing flowers from seed I have enjoyed closely observing their whole life cycle, from seed to flower to seed again. With sweeping translucent brush strokes and overlapping layers of watercolour I try to capture the delicacy of the petals, the plants unique forms and colourful beauty." - Lisa Hardy, Forever Flowers

Drop 4 - High Summer 2021

"Living and working in a rural setting I feel a heightened connection to the landscape. Reflecting on the natural world around me I developed this series of paintings to pay homage to the transitioning summer season. I worked intuitively with washes of colour focusing on capturing the fleeting beauty of blooming flowers and plants." - Lisa Hardy, Super Blooms

Drop 2 - Spring 2021

"For my newest collection I used a combination of acrylic, oil, ink and watercolour. I wanted to explore my creative boundaries by layering, overlapping, bleeding, scratching and drawing on the canvas with loose organic marks. These unplanned abstract paintings echo the botanical world, my biggest inspiration." - Lisa Hardy, These Moments

Drop 1 - New Year 2021

"This collection is a continuation of my Hyacinth series. Working on both paper and linen canvas these pieces draw inspiration from the plant's shape, leaves, clusters of flowers and heavy scent, which all symbolise the essence of spring." - Lisa Hardy, Hyacinth Series II

Drop 5 - Winter 2020

"The collection is guided by intuition and imagination. Loose watercolour marks create subtle abstractions of flowers which resound with the echo of classic botanical paintings and the organic world". - Lisa Hardy, Flora

Winter Limited Edition Prints

Drop 4 - Autumn 2020

"Being an introvert I enjoy being quiet and contemplative. Painting is a way to take time for myself and to find that space. With this series I wanted to convey a certain stillness with a light touch. The paintings are as always inspired by nature, observing first then painting freely from memory." - Lisa Hardy, Quiet Paintings

Drop 3 - High Summer 2020

"Witnessing the rhythm of nature connects me to my own self, which I transform into a source of creativity. I paint both real and imagined forms. Fragments and shapes from our garden appear. The space allows for thought and contemplation." - Lisa Hardy, Forms

Drop 2 - Spring / Summer 2020

"This series continues on from ‘Compositions of Spring’ and moves to a promise of summer… and hope. The garden is my sanctuary and where I find solace. It’s a daily ritual to inspect the garden and as I am, noticing all the little things; forget-me-nots, cowslips, primroses, ferns, buttercups and imagined blooms inside." - Lisa Hardy
