About Liesl Walsh
I am a fine art photographer in Venice, Florida with a background in art education. In college I majored in art education, receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree, and taught elementary art in Pennsylvania for nine years. After moving to Florida I focused on photography, being mentored by renowned French photographer Serge Ramelli and working with him as an ambassador in his academy, assisting him in teaching photography to thousands of students worldwide. l am a graduate of his PhotoSerge Institute of Photography with a Masters of Photography. Serge's training has been a huge influence on my artistry and my career. My work has sold in a gallery in downtown Venice, Florida and sells regularly locally and around the world on Fine Art America.
Art and photography have always been my passion. Drawing, painting, and colors excite me.
My portfolio includes landscapes and architecture in Florida, Michigan, Europe. I enhance light, shadows, and color when editing to create powerful, dramatic, and peaceful images. Serenity and those "magic moments" that touch deep into the soul... my images show the world as a beautiful place to live and a wonderful place to explore.
My favorite things to capture are historical and tropical places, pink flamingos, trees, coastlines, and old buildings with charm. I like to give my photos a painterly look while others I'll give dramatic, bold lighting.

Exhibited with Roy Lichtenstein
In 2021 three of my Giverny photos were printed 20 feet long on vinyl for the Roy Lichtenstein art exhibit "Monet's Garden Goes Pop!" at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota, Florida. One image hung on french doors at the entrance of the exhibit, and two other images were used as backdrops to 3D displays of Monet's home and Japanese bridge in the conservatory. Roy Lichtenstein is a famous pop artist from the 1960's who made a series of images about Claude Monet's garden. The exhibit hung for 4.5 months.
