Acclaimed Watercolor Artist at Arctic Raven

The Arctic Raven Gallery at 130 South First Street in Friday Harbor is proud to showcase the vibrant watercolors of nationally acclaimed Oneida / Iroquois artist Lisa Fifield.

Inspired by tales of the Iroquois Spirit World, Fifield captures the intimate connection between animals and humans. Whether helping or learning from each other, transforming, or shapeshifting, this bond affirms a harmony and wisdom born of shared spiritual and physical kinship.

Fifield has an intimate understanding of the rhythms of the earth, and a particular love for birds. She is also passionate about honoring those who fell during the Wounded Knee Massacre of 1890. Powerful portraits capture the dignity and integrity of these men and women.

Classically trained at the Atelier LeSueur School of Art in Minnesota, Fifield is primarily a watercolorist. A fascination with native artifacts led her to paint detailed images of native dress, bead- and quill-work, dolls, and weapons of war and trade.

She has won numerous awards, combined her stories and art in several children’s books, and is featured in museums and galleries nationwide.
