Lillian Forziat's oil paintings embrace a gentle juxtaposition of traditional realism and impressionism. She concentrates on capturing the beauty of everyday subjects in her still-life canvasses, and tranquil vistas in her landscapes and her seascapes. With a style reminiscent of more traditional artists, her paintings strive to capture the subtle essences of both  living and human-fabricated objects in quiescent settings.

A graduate of the State University of New York at Farmingdale and a Charter Member of The National Museum of Women in the Arts, she is a Board Member of  the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club (CLWAC), and a Fellow Member of  the American Artists Professional League (AAPL), both  in Manhattan (NYC). She is a juried member of the National Oil & Acrylic Painters' Society (NOAPS), and an Associate member of Oil Painters of America (OPA). She is also a juried member of The Art League of Nassau County, the Rehoboth Art League (RAL), the Northport Arts Coalition, and she is a former member of the Executive Board of the Floral Park Art League in New York.  As a jurist she has been called upon to evaluate and to critique paintings presented by current artists.

Her paintings have received numerous accolades including many Best in Show awards in exhibitions and fine art festivals and shows, and they are included in many private collections throughout the United States and the United Kingdom. Her award winning work has been exhibited in the Oil Painters of America National Exhibition at the Dana Gallery in Missoula, Montana, the 112th, 116th, 117th, 119th, 120th and 121st Annual Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club Annual Exhibits of Fine Art at the National Arts Club in New York City, as a finalist in the American Women Artists National Exhibition at the South Street Art Gallery in Easton, Maryland, the 84th, 85th, 86th, 87th 88th, and 89th Grand National Exhibitions of the American Artists Professional League at the Salmagundi Club in New York City, the National Oil & Acrylic Painters' Society\' Best of America Exhibition, as well as in  juried exhibitions in several fine art galleries in the Northeast, and at numerous fine art shows and festivals in the New York Metropolitan area/Long Island region, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Virginia.
