Hey, how's it going?

My name is Lisa and I am an artist. I also help people, organizations and businesses to develop and market their brand.

My approach is to help folks first discover and clarify their authentic voice (that's the branding part) and then figure out how to most effectively put that voice out into the world in order to achieve what they're trying to achieve (that's the marketing part). It's all about communication, problem solving, creativity and fun.

If you feel like your business could use a fresh perspective or if you just want to say hello (I love new friends!), you should get in touch so we can talk further about discovering your own personal brand of love and awesomeness.

Scroll on down to see examples of my work as well as a list of the services that I offer.

Thanks for stopping by!
