Lane Palmisano is an imaginative oil painter enamored with the lush, luminescent properties of the medium. She is a multi-faceted colorist equally enthralled with landscape, figurative and still life genre. Currently, “landscape has captivated me with its myriad color and perpetual movement”.

Lane’s contemporary paintings combine a loose, impasto application using palette knife and brush along with glazing techniques, layering her “Spiritscapes” with delicate veils of paint. This process gives these paintings an unusual texture and shimmering luminosity. Lane’s evocative oil paintings are her personal tribute to the Impressionists… the artists of light. Her paintings are in private and public collections throughout the world.

“When working from one’s imagination, a painting can only be coaxed…eventually you must follow ITS own life force, be it playful, forceful, or impulsive. Each painting deserves its own voice. I am searching for the eternal healing essence that color can achieve.”

After 30 years of teaching studio art and 27 vibrant years at the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria, VA., Lane has migrated to Bluffton, SC., just west of Hilton Head Island.

Currently, the Thibault Gallery in Beaufort, SC ( ) is representing a portion of Lane’s work. The paintings on this website are available for purchase unless noted otherwise, please contact Lane for details.

All paintings are oils on deep sided canvases with the sides painted as part of the composition. This presentation gives a finished appearance which does not necessitate framing.
