Love this lady! Her art and her spirit.
Lisa's a fantastic teacher too, so I have to share with you that she's having a very special one time only workshop this Sunday, 'Out of Bounds: Book Assemblage' April 15 from 1 - 5 pm at the Craft And Folk Art Museum for $65 and $55 for CAFAM members. To register online just go to www.cafam.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have been meaning to share a post on Lisa's book since it first came out last fall, so now's the perfect time to tell you about it too. 'The Re-purposed Library' is beautiful down to every last detail. It's one of those books that you will make you happy just by having it in your space and you will be inspired to think outside of the box creatively by re-purposing some of those books you have sitting on your shelf - or seek out some very special vintage ones on your next thrift store or flea market outing.
Another favorite is the trailer that Lisa's brother Nate helped her produce. Pretty much sums up the vibe of Lisa and her work. She just moved to Southern California almost 2 years ago now, all the way from New Hampshire. Courage and a quest for adventure, that's what it takes to start over and build a brand new life for yourself especially in Venice CA. It's been great to see Lisa jump in and get acclamated so quickly with so much bravery and enthusiasm to boot. And those of us who knew Lisa before her move out west, are so lucky to have her creative spirit here to spend time with as often as we can. You should definitely join her at her workshop if you can! Oh and! you might want to take home one of her bookmobiles too~
