As a registered nurse, Lisa has always been focused on helping others achieve balance by teaching practices that support health and wellness. As an artist, creating is what is required for her to experience that same balance, health and harmony. At times, this is achieved through jewelry design or bead weaving and at other times, she feels most at peace when behind a torch melting glass and forming beads or channeling that energy into fused and upcycled glass. Inspired by her environment as well as exhilarated by the work of fellow artisans, her paintings take on a life of their own as she mixes acrylic medium with specialized, carefully chosen blended additives that morph organically into a mesmerizing interfusion of wonder on her canvas.

Formally, she has earned a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing and a Master’s degree in Integrative Health and Healing. As complementary practice, she is a Reiki Master and an ordained minister
