Elizabeth "Lisa" Goddard

Newport, RI



Lisa Goddard is a Rhode Island artist, co-founder of Studio Goddard Partridge, a community printmaking studio in Pawtucket RI, and past executive director of the Newport Art Museum. She has taught printmaking, painting, drawing and journal-making. Her work is held in public and private collections including: University City Art Museum, Guangzhou, China; Boston Athenaeum and Fidelity Investments.

She writes, “The art of the printmaker is an endlessly challenging process. I believe it takes boldness to cut into woodblocks; confidence to gradually pull the image from multiple plates; precision to correctly register paper and blocks; and trust that in adjusting the image and the colors, the final print will achieve the original vision. The satisfactions that come from the traditional craft of relief printmaking are well worth the time and effort that go into the production of fine art prints.”
