Hi! I’m Lisa.

So happy you’re here!

I grew up in the country with forty acres as my playground, which is probably why I favor wide-open spaces. I drink copious amounts of black coffee, top my pancakes with peanut butter, and find chips and guacamole impossible to resist. I stride forward into the unknown with unflinching optimism and often leap without looking.

In July 2018, I bought my neighbor’s 2001 Ford Econoline van, and in February 2020, it became my full-time home. I sold my house, my belongings, quit my job, and intentionally stepped away from the comfortable life I’d created.

Easily awed by nature, I find infinite sources of inspiration in the panoramic landscapes through which I roam. Loosely referencing photographs and memories from my travels, I paint nostalgic interpretations of my experiences.

My paintings wander between expressionism and abstract to capture ephemeral moments like the playfulness of light, the jubilant riot of color in a sunset, or whimsical and imagination-stirring cloud formations.
