About

Certified Therapeutic Art Coach, Visual Artist, Photography, Painter, Glass Beadsmith, Jeweler, Arts & Crafts, Facilitate in-person workshops

Lisa says: “making art
is a matter of discovery, reflection
and developing powers of magical expression.

She has more than twenty-five years experience as a public speaker, as a performance artist, a visual artist, as a therapeutic art coach and she is magically skilled with natural teaching abilities working with pastors, people with disabilities, seniors and multi-generational audiences. Her strength in entrepreneurial business strategies crosses over in the retail and direct sales marketplace with enormous sales growth potential. She is proficient with end-user software and internet technology.

Her early background extends from her role as an administrative assistant for Managing Directors in various aspects of corporate finance and brokerage clearinghouses: international funds transfers and later served a host of hedge funds and private equity companies. Even today, she is grateful for the solid exposure to Chemical Bank, PIB, Bank of China, Mitsubishi, Solomon, Morgan, Bear Stearns and Cantor.
