I'm known for many things within various industries, with a main recognition of sports cuffs, sportswear, jewelry and book publishing.

I have always loved art and history in every form. My passions range from photography, computer graphics, sports, music, altered art to stained glass, nature, apothecary to jewelry making, sewing and sculpting. I enjoy baking and cooking with gourmet recipes and ones I've created. I enjoy reading and working in the world of printing and publishing. I love searching for hidden treasures, like Indiana Jones and being surrounded by magic and enchantment! To find artists who inspire me and help me to create. Basically if its vintage, then Its for me. The whole look of Frosted cupcakes and twinkling paper sprinkled with tarnished silver is so magical and enchanting, anything odd and out of the ordinary has mystery surrounding it and I love to learn about those curious things, waiting for me to either find them or create them.

    "Lisa has always been very inspiring. She trully has a knack for making majic happen. She is very devoted to her swaps, blog, pictures, Art, & (now I can add from fortunately first hand experience -)teaching.

    "Lisa is not only my best friend, she is also my daughter, some one I am extremely proud of. Not only is she talented but her heart and desire to help others far exceeds anyone I know, Lisa does not have one mean bone in her and when she creates, she creates right from the heart, always wanting to help someone achieve something great.

    As a teacher she has shared her artful knowledge with me, having patience and sharing all she has, I hope you too will see the magic she has inside!

    "Wow, what can I say about Lisa that everyone hasn't already said??

    Lisa truly fills the flickr, faerie, magic, world and our real world with...what is she says all the time?, MAGIC and JOY!! She truly spreads magic and joy and thoughtfulness and kindness in all she does.
    Her work is magical and bright and sparkley and fun, just as she is.

    She must be so so very busy, but still finds time to go out of her way to give and be a real blessing to others. She has truly blessed me personaly with her thoughtfulness and I will never forget it.

    My involvement with flickr and especially the Faerie Zine group (of which Lisa is the administrator) has helped me to grow as a person and as an artist and I am very thankful.

    Thanks Lisa for all you do.
    I wish you, always......Magic and Joy!!
    Hugs to you,
    Susie"

    "I discovered Lisa's work well over a year ago on Ebay, and purchased a few of her fairytale whimsies. I was in "awe" of her imagination, talent, vision, and the magical world that she creates for us all to admire and enjoy. When I joined Flickr I was ESTATIC to find Lisa here, and see ALL of her dreamy & magical creations. I ALWAYS look forward to seeing Lisa's creations. They "pull me in" to a fairytale world that I want to be a part of. Her work warms my heart , and always put the BIGGEST smile on my face. :) Im also enjoying watching her artwork constantly evolve and change. The fairy world stories that she dreams of and writes along with her art pieces are just DIVINE!!!! Lisa IS the next JK ROWLING!!! And I will be one of her BIGGEST FANS!!!!!

    I am sick that you went through some one hacking your site and loosing all of your wonderful photos and comments every one made including MY testimonial! GAH

    I just love you girl...it is like you came from under my ribs and found me in the outside world. You are so magical, and your art touches my soul in a deep and meaningful way. Every thing I love... you touch on! I am SO honored to have your art living in my collection!

    I show you off often only "I" hold the art and say "touch with your eyes!" so I can preserve the beauty! I have some at work to cheer my days up... and they make me so happy while I am working! In fact, my cube is one that people 24/7 come by and sit when I am not there to find their center and a happy place.

    You bring joy to me... And I want to thank you for being you! : )
