Lisa Ober has been a professional pastel and oil painter for over 25 years. Collectors have recognized Lisa’s portraits and still life paintings for their exquisite realism and detail. She received her formal training at the School of Fine Arts at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri and began painting portraits professionally as a college student. She has since completed over a thousand commissions. Her most notable clients include CEOs of Fortune 100 companies, Supreme Court Justices, local, state and nationally elected officials, the Pope and other clergy, as well as a myriad of sports icons.
Lisa is a co-owner of Ober Anderson Gallery in Kirkwood, Missouri, which displays samples of her portraits and exhibits her still life paintings. She is a signature member of the Pastel Society of America and her work has been featured in publications such as The Pastel Journal.
