About this pro

Workshops held the first weekend of every month. for details.

Award-winning artist working in oil and charcoal. I have been teaching in person and online for 15 years. As a self-taught artist working in a French Academic and art nouveau style, I can almost always help students identify and tackle their struggles, to overcome them. I'm honest, but I'm nice too. 

I have a large, private studio in a secure where students will be comfortable setting up their work. Groups of 1-3 people are acceptable.

    Lisa is an amazing instructor. She doesn't hold back sharing her wealth of knowledge from years of study. Every step is carefully explained and intermixed with words of advice and encouragement. Plus, her workshop was a heck of a lot of fun. I wouldn't hesitate to study with her again.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to find out what people already know, and what they want to know. Who are your influences? What work are you most proud of? If you could claim any painting as your own, which one would it be?

I have been a professional painter for 15 years. Features in Southwest Art and American Artist magazines. Co-founder of ArtStudioSecrets
