Lisa Noonis, 1963 | Abstract / Palette knife painter

Lisa Noonis is a Maine-based painter** known for her lively explorations of color, form, and space. Constantly pushing the boundaries of representation, Noonis captures the essence of objects, figures, and places with an ever-evolving, abstract style that embraces color, shape and line.

Lisa Noonis was born in York, Maine, the fifth child in a family of seven children - five boys and two girls. Her parents, Peter and Sofie Scontras, are first generation Greek Americans, and still live in the gracious New England colonial where Lisa grew up in Kittery, Maine. The family was close and loving, fostering in all the Scontras children a strong sense of family, hard work, responsibility, ambition and independence.

Her artwork has been shown around the country and is featured in many private collections.
Noonis is represented by galleries in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Virginia, Georgia, and Florida.
Her most recent solo show "Tidal", was at The Banks Gallery in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
She has been recognized for both her painting and design work and was a 2016 finalist for the New Hampshire Charitable Trust’s Piscataqua Region Artist Advancement Grant.
