In 1962, at the age of seven, Ms. Lisa Etre became a resident of St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands. She later graduated from American University in Washington D.C. in 1975 with a BA in art and traveled and studied in Mexico and South America. Lisa attended Instituto Allende, San Miguel de Allende, Mexico to continue studying painting and printmaking.
In 1980, Lisa sailed to St. John on her sister's 40 foot sailboat and she lived aboard the vessel for six months before finding a residence in Rendezvous Bay, St. John.
In 1983, Lisa left St. John to pursue a master's degree at The University of New Mexico. In January 1984 a teaching position was offered with the VI Department of Education on St. Thomas and Lisa has just completed 22 years of teaching art at the Ivanna Eudora Kean High School, where she holds the Chairperson position.
Side by side with her teaching career, Lisa has continued to develop her artistic expressions. Her colorful graphic gouaches, beautiful oils of island scenes, bright watercolors and attractive giftware items are known throughout the Caribbean. She has been published in Islands magazine, illustrated for Simon & Schuster's 'One white Sail' and was a featured artist on the set of the Bill Cosby Show. Lisa is a founding member of the Artists' Association of St. John, Inc.
So... add a little island sunshine to your personal art collection, or perhaps enchant the Caribbean dreamer on your gift list.
