Lisa’s Bio and Artist Statement

I was fortunate to have been born into a family that valued the arts. As a young adult, I received a classical training in music. With this, came the rigorous demands for daily practice, and the fierce, utterly consuming need for self control during performances; I credit these qualities for having fine tuned me, they tempered me into the artist that I’ve become.

In my 20s, I traded my horn for a paintbrush. I received a degree in Fine Arts from Bethel University in 1988. In the following years I studied studio lighting—darkroom techniques at MCAD. I took graduate courses in poetry at the University of Minnesota.
