Lisa McLymont was born in Manhattan, NY and has called Columbus, Ohio home since the age of ten. Formally educated in graphic design and visual communications, McLymont’s career as a multi-disciplinary artist includes forays into sculpture, metal-work, jewelry design, drawing and painting. Her ongoing series – The Universe Tribe – is focused on identity and inspired by the powerful style of protest posters, the movement of the seasons, and the soft mystery of artists Georgia O’Keefe and Susan Seddon Boulet, from whom she draws inspiration.
Lisa M. McLymont is a graduate of The Ohio State University, where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Design through the Department of Design and Visual Communications. She was a 2010 Fellowship Recipient of The Ohio State University Arts Initiative Fellowship for Emerging Artists.
In addition to creating an ongoing body of portrait paintings, McLymont works as a Graphic Designer for Equitas Health and is the owner of Coppercurious, where she creates jewelry and three-dimensional sculptural art.
She has served as an adjunct faculty member at Columbus College of Art and Design and Ohio Dominican University, both in Columbus, Ohio, and has been a visiting artist at Denison University in Granville, Ohio. A former member of the Ohio Art League and the Columbus Society for Communicating Arts, McLymont is one of the inaugural coordinators of the Greater Columbus Arts Council’s Columbus Open Studio & Stage event, and The Art and Artists Of Ohio, an online community.
McLymont’s work has been included in numerous group and solo exhibits in the Central Ohio area and can also be seen at Blockfort, where she is a studio artist. Currently, she is focused on massaging color into wood grain and further building her body of visual art.
I enjoy how portraits move people to talk with each other and see new perspectives.
