Lisa (Morrett) Reid Cole is an active, professional artist and member of the Class of 1972 Voyager Steering Committee, navigating the 50th Reunion. This particular piece aims to extoll the theme of our reunion of voyaging home with the rough waters of life becoming calm seas the closer we get to our “heavenly” home in Hawaii. The metaphor of Hokule‘a in the light of this journey is her nod to this theme and our inspiration.
Lisa graduated from Ohio State University with a BFA specializing in painting and drawing. She started actively making and selling her art in the early 1990s while living in Ojai, California. She now paints in Texas, Napa Valley, and when traveling. Her focus has been primarily on landscapes, but she is also delving into abstractions and figurative work.
This original oil painting is available through a private fundraising auction by the Class of ’72 Reunion Committee, with bidding only open to Class of ’72 members and their families. Net proceeds will go to the 1972 Class Fund to underwrite reunion expenses or add to our Class Fund.
