The creative urge has always been a part of Lisa’s life from making shoebox houses as a child to exploring mixed media as an adult. Her folk art style blends old objects with new materials and techniques. Teaching comes naturally for Lisa, as she has been a high school “Home Arts” teacher since 1976. Her work has been in several Somerset Studio publications, ARTitude Zine and the 2005,2006, and 2008 Art Play calendars. Writing is another keen passion and she has contributed articles on soldering, altered books, and art techniques for Cloth Paper Scissors and magazines. Her art and writing appear in several books including, The Altered Book Scrapbook and The Artful Storybook.
