Growing up and living in rural Vermont for most of her life, Lisa learned to appreciate the natural beauty and abundant wildlife this great New England state has to offer. Those of you who are fans of her work can clearly see where her inspiration draws from.
Lisa began creating art as a child and was influenced by two maternal figures. Both her mother and grandmother were very artistic, becoming Lisa's earliest teachers/mentors; her grandmother was an 8th grade art teacher. Lisa was determined to accomplish her goals at an early age; she sold her first piece of art at age 14.
Lisa works primarily with acrylics and finishes her paintings with an antiquing process that also provides a protective coating. We carry her rabbit hooked wool pillows that boast charming detail which emanates directly from her rural influences. Today, she continues to live and work in Vermont and likes to keep things simple. She does that with her favorite cat, her muse, always by her side. It is said that all of her animals have proved good models over the years.
