Lisa graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology in 1998 with a BFA in photography. She went on to receive a master's degree in art education in 1999 from RIT. Since 1999, she has been teaching art at a high school in New Jersey. Lisa has also spent 4 summers abroad teaching an advanced experimental photography class in London, England. Lisa takes time to pursue her personal career as an artist as well. She works mainly as a photographer and painter. Most of what she creates has to do with a moment...or the combination of many moments...of her past, the present, a place, a feeling, a memory, a sound, a desire. These moments that were significant and transformed into a visual experience. Quite often Lisa paints in response to music at live performances. Public art is another interest of hers; being parallel to her philosophy that art should be for everyone.
