experimentation. Richly layered and with her own vocabulary of gestural marks and linear elements, Lillie strives to convey the emotional impact of her source of inspiration...be it the landscape, music, poetry or deep personal experiences. Lillie enjoys creating visually stimulating images that leave the subject open to the viewer’s interpretation.
Lillie is inspired by the landscape, waterways and rich history of the Piedmont region of Georgia. Her studio is located in rural Columbia County, GA. and the short walk from her house to her studio is filled with the sights and sounds of nature, taking her alongside a creek, a pond and across a pasture where goats graze in the distance.
