I've Arrived!

Wow! I have finally arrived! Welcome to my blog! I hope to update my blog weekly. I just opened an Etsy store and am so excited to be up and running. I have a mini post of some of my items. My goal is to try and get put 2 new items a day up. If that's possible! I have been selling my wares for years at craft shows, and decided I would like to make a debut in online sales.

I just wanted to say special thanks to one my best friends, Peggy, aka Pegalicious! Without the use of her fabulous camera this all wouldn't be possible. Thank YOU Peggy!

Just a little bit about myself, I am a self taught multi media artist. I enjoy everything from traditional oil painting to fractal art, jewelry making, and anything that seems to appeal to me! There is so much to do and so little time to do it! I am currently the President of The Antioch Fine Arts Foundation in Antioch Illinois. Please visit our site there at Don't forget sign our guest book and let us know you were there.

I will be in the newspaper very soon through the poineer press . Our Art Gallery is working with the Antioch School system to promote the arts. On May 2nd they will be having an Art Crawl. This is a great opportunity to see local artits in action as they demonstrate their craft. The whole town will be filled with artists and students doing their thing to promote the arts. Not just art work. I have chosen to show my jewelry and will be demonstrating wire wrapped jewelry, my newest passion. Also with me that day will be my friend Mary Jo Moeller. She will also be having some of her jewelry to sell. This will be her first time out! I am so excited for her, it is always great to see someone excell at what they love to do best!

Also what's new for me this week is I am going to be doing a speech for The College Of Lake County, for a Women In The Arts class. I have prepared a powerpoint presentation on my family's art history going back to the late 1800's. My mom actually has art work from our relatives that dates back that far! I also have many slides of my mother's brilliant art work. where I have always gotten my inspiration. Also, and those of you who know me, it's all about Lisa. I have many slides on my art work, paintings, fractal art, my vintage series, altered books, cigar box, purses, and my current works. I am posting a picture of one of my fractal art pictures called Galaxy.

So it's a busy week for me and I am thrilled I got the ball rolling! Please visit my etsy store at I'd love it if you would subcribe to my blog!! Thanks a million! Lisa
