With a painterly style that also includes an element of realism, Lisa-Maj Roos focuses on expressiveness, lush colour and thick, juicy brushwork. Beginning with a good foundation, she applies paint or pastel with a confident stroke — playing with colour, surface quality, design and simplified form.

Maintaining a studio gallery in the beautiful Annapolis Valley in Nova Scotia, Canada, many of her pieces can be found in private collections throughout Canada and abroad.
