Born and raised in Wisconsin, Lisa spent her early adulthood on the West Coast, living in Phoenix, AZ and Portland, OR. There she became aware of her Midwest accent, flowered her eccentric nature, and learned that 105 degrees in Arizona is tolerable. In 2017/18 she experienced breast cancer which will inspire her future work. She knits scarves, plays Sudoku, and has an affinity for nutcrackers and all things British. Lisa currently lives just outside of Madison, WI with her two sibling cats she named after her favorite songs by Rufus Wainwright and Guster.
