Lisa Connors' Profile

About

I grew up in the middle of cornfields and falling down barns. On long afternoons in every season, I explored the streams and fields and vast stands of swampy sticks that passed for trees with my little dog, Bertha. The rest of the time I read, and drew and drew and drew. In the middle of my grown up life I reclaimed the way that little girl knew about the mysteries of the world and who she was in it. I picked up a camera and remembered how to see. I gathered up sheets and sheets of handmade papers from all over the world and remembered how touch transports me. I made myself a journal and remembered how to dream, and remember and explore. And I am one of those people who just doesn't feel finished until whatever comes from these explorations is out in the world somehow. So here in this little shop, amongst the seers and explorers and artists of the world, sits me. And some of my things. And then you came along.
