Lisa Norman is a native of Buffalo, WY.  She completed a degree in Visual Communications from the Colorado Institute of Art and was pointed towards studying medical illustration when she met and married her late husband.  Her life journey has included the joys of experiencing ranch life as a cowboy’s wife in TX, NE, SD, and back to WY.  Along the way, her business, Images West Studio, documented their life and the livestock they cared for in every manner possible…from photographs taken horseback to sketches from the inside of a range tepee.  Along with assignment shooting for western magazines, and a busy design career, she also published an award-winning coffee table book on the historic Haythorn Ranch after their 15 years of employment there and continues to use the rich reference material gathered along the way to feed her creativity at the easel.

Her work has been shown in galleries and private collections across the U.S. and abroad. She also markets her own originals, limited edition prints, notecards, and boutique items through her website: (  She has rendered large scale mural paintings for both commercial and residential clients in several different states and Canada. Her original fine art gallery pieces are rendered in oil, watercolor, conte, and charcoal.

Lisa’s work continues to focus on whatever brings a bit of joy and inspiration into her life, and hopefully the lives of those who view her work.
