About Lisa, in her own words:
Born in Germany, I grew up in Colorado Springs, Colorado. As a child I roamed the then wide-open foothills and canyons of the front range of the Rocky Mountains. This connection with nature has always sustained and inspired me.
I studied painting and industrial design at Colorado College, City College of San Francisco, and Pratt Institute.
Living in San Francisco for five years, and New York City for ten, infused me with the wonder, freedom, and crazy richness of urban life. I returned to the West, moving to Santa Fe, my home since 1991.
I have been a painting contractor and decorative painter for many years. I have always been an artist. The scale of many of my paintings is informed by a love of physical work, the imagery by a love for the physical world.
