REDLANDS, Calif. – Lisa Mozzini-McDill’s plein air and oil
paint works combine a playful adaptation of capturing time and moods beyond
their surface meanings. Her pieces, along with those of four other artists,
will be featured during this year’s annual “Evening with the
Artists” event, hosted by the Redlands Community Hospital Foundation
on Friday, April 24 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
“What I think about when painting is emphasizing an exciting play
of light and shadow, an interesting composition, and enhancing a scene
that evokes a deeper meaning or emotion in me,” says McDill of her
art. “It is my intent that this depth and emotion I feel will also
be communicated and resonate with the viewer.”
Lisa and her family currently reside in Chino Hills. A graduate of San
Diego State University with Honors, a Distinction in Art and a Bachelor
of Art in Graphic Communications, McDill went on to work as a graphic
artist, illustrator and portrait artist for over 10 years in the San Diego
area. She then discovered oil painting in 2006, and has been steadily
building her collection of large pieces and portraits ever since. McDill
also teaches in her studio and at Parkhurst Galleries, Inc., where she
demonstrates for various art groups and gives plein air workshops.
McDill says her inspirations come from her love of being outside, travelling
through Europe, and seeing nature through her own eyes, as well as in
her photos. She has taken workshops and lessons from artists such as Michael
Obermeyer, Elizabeth Tolley, John Budicin, Ken Auster, and Joseph Todorovitch.
She admires the work of John Singer Sargent, Anders Zorn, and Joaquin Sorolla.
Her paintings can be seen at The Lake House in Cedar Glen, Hillside Fine
Art in Claremont, the Artisan Gallery in Mission Viejo, and at Parkhurst
Galleries, Inc., San Pedro.
McDill joins local artists Bill Hudson, Charlie Ciali, Diana McLaughlin,
and r. mike nichols at the annual “Evening with the Artists”
event. McDill’s artwork will be available for purchase at the Stan
and Ellen Weisser Education Pavilion from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Friday,
April 24. Proceeds will benefit the Redlands Community Hospital Foundation’s
