Born in Michigan, and raised for a time in California Lisa's summers were spent in the wide open spaces of Idaho surrounded by trout filled rivers, snow capped mountains and riding horses almost daily. This freedom in her childhood was a huge influence in her life and allowed her to discover nature in her own uninterrupted way. Lisa moved to Colorado to go to college and continues to make her home there. She graduated from Colorado State University in 1981 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. She initially pursued a career creating stained glass windows and custom framing. After many years, she returned to painting full time. Lisa continues to show her work in juried exhibitions and various galleries.
