Lisa Congdon is a visual artist, living and working in San Francisco. Raised in a creative family, it wasn't until she was in here 30's that she began to make art, and eventually make art for a living. Her work is colorful and grounded in nature. I feel that she is one of those rare artists who can capture the essence of a thing, rather than simply documenting it's appearance. She has an Etsy shop and is the creator of the brilliant A Collection a Day project and blog.
