Lisa Anderson Fratzke grew up in central Wisconsin spending many of her childhood weekends at the cabin up north. Born into a family with a strong appreciation for nature and wildlife, this has become the landscape of her art. Lisa attended Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. Her junior year she was given the opportunity to study abroad at the University of Nottingham, England, furthering her studies in Art Theory, Art History, and Photography. Upon returning to Luther, her main area of study was the human figure and oil painting, graduating with a BA in Studio Arts. Her travels both abroad and at home have fueled her passion for understanding the human experience, the human form, and our relationship with the landscapes we inhabit. She has had a number of local exhibitions both group and solo including the Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts, Katherine E Nash Quarter Gallery, and the MN State Fair. She currently lives in Minneapolis with her husband and daughter.
