A creative polymath, Lisa began her artistic path in Seattle as a graphic designer and art director. In the late 80's, she was working for such luminary cultural institutions as Sub Pop Records, COCA (the Center on Contemporary Art), and the much revered local music magazine The Rocket. It was as the first official Art Director for Sub Pop that she designed Nirvana’s first records and their now iconic logo.
She co-founded a design agency in Seattle, where she got her first introduction to coding, and served as its creative director until 2007, when she left the design field to learn tattooing. She immersed herself in the craft with an obsessive enthusiasm. Dedicated to the art of tattooing and graciously tormented by perfectionism, her linework based art style garnered her awards, international acclaim, and a bevy of clients vying for a chance to give her full artistic license to make their dreams come alive on skin.

When Covid hit, Lisa was in Los Angeles focusing on her tattooing career. When the shutdowns started and she couldn’t tattoo, she found herself with ample time to explore other artistic realms she’d put on the back burner. She took up painting again, making music, and having fun with digital art. She moved back to Seattle in August 2020 and has spent the majority of her time since then doing digital art and discovering the new world of NFTs.
