Hi, I’m Lisa.
I love making things. Mainly I write, paint, and draw comics—but I’m open to trying pretty much anything. Photography, cooking, crafts. I want to do ALL. THE. THINGS—ALL. THE. TIME.
What I love about creating is the feeling of calm and connection it forges. When I’m inside the creative zone, I feel like anything is possible. My soul dances, my inner critics go silent, and I’m free to just BE.
Its a feeling I want everyone to experience. Because if everyone felt this way, at least some of the time, there’s no telling what might be possible.
My stories, comics, and paintings explore what it feels like to be human. It's my way of making sense of the moments of awe, delight, epiphany, and even heartbreak—that connect us all. Like when you feel so happy you want to sing. Or the frustration of knowing that no matter how hard you try, you just can’t get out of your own way.
I want to illuminate something shared and universal. I hope people will see what I’ve made and intuitively get it. Even feel it. I want them to say to themselves, “Yes, that’s me too.”
My inspiration comes from everywhere. Gazing at the sunset, playing with a cat I stumble onto during a walk, laughing with a close friend, and grieving the loss of a loved one. I find beauty equally in nature and the man-made world.
