I’m Lisa, a children’s book illustrator, artist and art educator. With my iPad and Photoshop, I create textural, whimsical and commercially appealing illustrations. Having spent over a decade teaching at both the high school and university levels, I now find that I’m drawn to crafting stories through words and pictures. I regularly participate in critique groups through SCBWI and am on the volunteer committee for my local SoCal chapter. My favorite pastime is photographing wildlife and landscapes for inspiration, while traveling with my family. When not drawing, you can find me tinkering with my guitar or relaxing outside with my two cats, watching the hummingbirds and bees pollinate my garden. I call the Los Angeles area home, where I live with my husband and two children.
