Lisa’s life as an artist began at a very early age. The drive to capture her immediate surroundings and find inspiration in everyday events of life can be traced to when she was only five years old. This vision and excitement for life continues to be the creative force behind her celebrated art, prints and posters today.
“I thank God continually for the simple moments in life, they feed my soul and forever renew my inspirations”, says Lyon. Born in St. Charles, Mo., she attended the Art Institute of Chicago for four years with affiliated study at Northern Michigan University and Roosevelt University. Lisa was employed as an art director of an ad agency before becoming a full-time illustrator and finally an independent artist creating paintings in her New Mexico Studio.
