Lisa fell in love with fine art and especially Plein Air. She explored many different mediums and decided on pastels as her favorite. She studied with colorist, Camille Przewodek, to take her skills and abilities to higher levels. She has studied with some of the best Plein Air Artists in the country, including Ken Auster, Debra Huse, Kim Lordier, Clark Mitchell and many more.
