Overview

Simmons Photography and Fine Arts was established in 2018. It is a Limited Liability Company, registered in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania,  specializing in Fine Art Photography, as well as Graphite Drawings and Watercolor / Acrylic Paintings. I, Lisa S. McLeod-Simmons, own the company and am the principal artist. I work on commission and show my art in juried and invited exhibitions. I have been a working artist for more than ten years. 


Artistic Statement

Art can reflect a moment in time or it can tell a story. When Art does both it chronicles our passage through individual and communal struggles and triumphs.

But more than this, Art can offer a means to recognize and understand our inner tempests and societal turmoils. Art gives voice to the marginalized. It offers a healing refuge from times of chaos.

Art bestows on each of us a means to reclaim and express our Identities that have been made vulnerable by social and political upheavals.

Art, in its expansive breadth of forms, not only reflects the times in which we live, it has the capacity to heal the individual soul and the collective soul of society.
