Lisa Matrundola was born the youngest of five children in Montreal, Quebec. Her parents immigrated from Italy and England in the late 1950’s and later moved to Atlanta when she was in middle school.
After earning a BFA from the University of Georgia, Lisa worked in Atlanta as a designer and illustrator. Amid raising two children, she established a custom cake bakery, renovated and managed several rental properties, and taught fitness classes, but something was missing.
Lisa entered the 2016 Artfield’s exhibition, where she received one of ten Merit Awards. This recognition ignited a passion to explore themes of female identity through painting and sculpture. In 2021, Lisa completed her MFA in Painting at the Savannah College of Art & Design where she is now part of the Foundational Studies Faculty. Lisa has exhibited her work at The Quinlan Visual Arts Center, ArtFields, The Bo Bartlett Center, MINT and Spruill Center for the Arts.
