About

Lisa is a children’s book illustrator, author and artist. You can find some of her products for sale through her Shop & Etsy. Her work is inspired by the beauty of nature, ecology and vintage illustrations. As a child she spent time exploring the forests of Alabama, identifying every creature that she would come into contact with. She has always had an appreciation for children’s books especially those depicting the natural world, collecting them even today. Her award winning illustrations have appeared in art galleries, on book covers, magazines and in picture books such as Yellow-Speckled Blackbird and Sophie’s New Song. She graduated with a B.F.A. from the University of Alabama and an M.F.A. from the Savannah College of Art and Design. Her background is in Art Education, as an Adjunct Professor, High School teacher, workshop and summer camp instructor.
