Lisbeth Firmin is a full-time painter and printmaker known for her urban landscapes. She is an accredited teacher of Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, and was trained by Dr. Betty Edwards. She has been teaching this technique for more than 25 years.
She teaches painting and printmaking at various art institutes, universities, schools, and artist residencies around the United States. She is the recipient of many awards, grants, and fellowships, including a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant, a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship for Printmaking (Lily Auchincloss Fellow), and full fellowships to the MacDowell Colony, National Seashore Cape Cod Dune Shack Residency, Vermont Studio Center, and Saltonstall Arts Colony.
Using Dr. Edwards’ exercises combined with her own techniques, Firmin’s teaching methods encourage both professional and beginning students to find their unique ways of seeing. She takes the stress out of “being creative” and guides students towards unleashing their own unique energy through making art.
