About

I’m also a Time Lord

My name is Lisa, I’m a pharmacist by trade, artist and writer by heart. I grew up in Chicago, IL, gravitated toward the 80’s goth scene, especially The Cure, and this is reflected in a lot of my artwork. I like to attempt to produce art that is attractive and yet also unsettling to some degree, hence the name of my store, “Pigtails and Combat Boots” - kind of like something cute, but with a “bite” to it, which is kind of how I view my personality. I’m an extreme INTJ personality so I may seem quiet and/or shy in person, while I’m actually deep in thought, surveying the details of my surroundings and laying out plans to takeover the U.S. government (call me V.) ;)

I’ve been drawing since I was 4 years old, starting out with drawing countless pictures of Snoopy and the Peanuts gang. I took some Art classes in high school that helped me polish my technique and other than that, I’ve pretty much been on my own, learning to use different mediums through my own exploration. At the moment, I’ve been exploring the world of acrylic painting which has been both rewarding and frustrating simultaneously.

I also have a degree in English, so I like to use references to literature in a lot of my artwork, especially the Renaissance period, or relating to the Legends of King Arthur. I like to attempt artisan craft projects that interest me, which led me to learning to make jewelry, which I also sell, as well as other crafty stuff like decoupage boxes, polymer clay sculpture and whatever else my random OCD-ADD brain is focused on at any given moment.

I currently live in Phoenix, AZ and after 18+ years as a retail pharmacist I’m realizing that I really need to accomplish something with my artwork in order to be completely fulfilled and happy. My ideal goal would be to be successful enough to leave my pharmacist career and become a full-time artist. My ultimate purpose is to explore the gothic fantasy worlds floating around in my mind and to share these worlds with you through my artwork. Oh yeah, and I also really enjoy making fanart for my many fangirl obsessions
