About

Liesl at Venice Island Gallery

Liesl Walsh

I am a fine art photographer in Venice, Florida with a background in art education. I am working with renowned French photographer Serge Ramelli as an ambassador in his PhotoSerge Academy, assisting him in teaching photography online to students from around the world. I am a graduate of the PhotoSerge Institute of Photography. My work has sold in a gallery in downtown Venice, Florida.


Art and photography have always been my passion. Drawing, painting, colors, and travel excite me. In college I majored in art education, receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree, taught elementary art in Pennsylvania for 9 years, then moved to Florida.


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. 


My photos have received many awards locally and internationally. In 2021 my photo, "The Most Amazing Sunset at the Pier in Venice, Florida" won a billboard contest on Fine Art America, placing in the top 20 photos of 24,341 images and 9226 artists worldwide. The photo hung on a billboard on I-4 near Orlando in November 2021.


I have had photos displayed at the King Center Gallery at Brevard College and at the Vero Beach Museum of Art. 


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.


My photos have been published in the Vero Beach Magazine, on the cover of Florida Currents and South County Healthy Living magazines, Sarasota Magazine, Digital Photographer Magazine, numerous times in the Venice Gondolier newspaper, and in my husband's book, "Vagabonds in France" by Michael A. Barry. My images have been featured in webinars and ads by Serge Ramelli, who is my mentor and has inspired the artistry of my photography. 


My images have been used in newspaper articles, online, and in campaigns to help spread the message of preserving historic buildings here in Venice, Florida. Many people here in Venice want to preserve the historic charm and small town feel of this city for future generations. 


I have had the pleasure to create images for the following companies and clients:

Imagine Museum (a glass sculpture museum) in St. Petersburg, FL

Hampson Gallery in St. Petersburg, FL

Raymond James in Venice, FL

Sharky's on the Pier in Venice, FL

OE Wheel Distributors in Sarasota, FL

I illustrated and designed the cover for my husband's book, "Vagabonds in France" by Michael A. Barry, a story about our unexpected adventure to Europe. We put everything in storage and left with no return date or home to come back to. We sailed across the Atlantic to Portugal and Spain, then traveled to the French Riviera and Provence, with a month in Paris. Readers say they feel they are right there with us on the journey and laugh out loud. The book is available on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle here.
