About the artist:

Lisbeth Firmin is a contemporary American realist whose paintings and monotypes explore the relationship between people and their urban environment, while simultaneously capturing the energy and light of a specific moment in time. Her art has expanded from early depictions of lonely highways done from solitary road trips, to painting the neighborhoods and street scenes surrounding her downtown New York City apartment, where she lived for more than 25 years. Her work has been written about in The New York Times, Provincetown Arts, The Boston Globe, Constellation 617, Provincetown Arts, Arts Magazine, American Art Collector, and numerous other publications. Firmin teaches painting/printmaking at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts and at the Truro Center for the Arts, Castle Hill, Cape Cod, MA.
