Do More of What You Love — My Journey to Painting

Hi! I'm Lisa and I live near Toronto, Ontario with my husband, son and three cats.

When I was in high school, my favourite subjects were art and social science. I loved drawing, painting, and doing research. When I graduated, I had to decide between the two, and ultimately decided to pursue a social science degree. That led to a Master's degree in Anthropology, and years of work as an archaeologist. While that was very interesting, I still didn't quite feel right about what I was doing. So I tried something completely different and retrained for the IT world. I became a developer, writing code throughout the day. As it turned out, that was DEFINITELY not for me, but I stuck it out for a few years.

Then I became a Mom, which was both extremely challenging and rewarding. Being a Mom also gave me the clarity to figure out what was most important to me, and that's when I realized it was time to return to my art. So I took classes in drawing and painting, and I have not looked back! You can find me nowadays, happily working on a painting, sipping strong coffee in my home by the lake.

I look forward to working with you to bring your keepsakes to life in watercolour! It's what I truly love to do.

Frequently asked questions
Why are your paintings on a smaller scale?

I've always loved things on a smaller scale. I prefer bite size brownies to big ones. And when it comes to your keepsakes I think it's nice to have an intimate version of them, not something so big and in-your-face! I love how sweet and personal they become when they are smaller.

What is your process?

Once I receive your photo, I start out by sketching my subject in pencil, followed by painting using watercolours. I paint on acid-free, watercolour paper. Everything is hand-drawn and hand-painted!

Can you paint ANY pet/animal or favourite thing?

Yes! I enjoy painting a variety of subjects, including stuffed toys, shoes, handbags, clothing items, books, etc. If it's your favourite item, I can paint it!

Painting pets/animals is also something I enjoy, and I look forward to new portraits.
