The Gros Morne area is unique in many respects and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site--one of only a handful of such sites in Canada. It is renowned for its beauty, diversity of landscape and unique geological history, which is one of the reasons Lise has spent more than thirty years painting its many views.
The studio in Woody Point is close to the water and set five minutes walk away from the centre of town. It is peaceful and quiet and close to nature. Wildlife sightings are not unusual...one summer, in one day, from the yard we saw a bald eagle, whales and a moose. Early in the summer, whales often spout within a stones throw of the studio itself.
The Sorensen Studio of Fine Arts is located in Woody Point, Newfoundland. This small fishing village is part of Gros Morne National Park and is situated on the South shore of a deep fjord called Bonne Bay.
The Town of Woody Point has become a cultural centre for the area, and boasts a theatre and is a home to several artists. There is a lively tourism trade with restaurants and craft stores. The many attractions include historical buildings, hiking trails, and the park's Discovery Center.
