Lisa grew up on the island of Bermuda with the great fortune of being a 16th generation of her family tree, most of whom had called Bermuda home. Her upbringing could clearly be described as a charmed existence of exceptional childhood freedoms on the island and in the waters most of which was on horseback. The experiences she was gifted has instilled a freedom of spirit and connectedness to the environment that informs her work today.
Lisa’s foray into photography began in high school and was later honed through summer jobs, successive internships, mentoring opportunities and intensive workshops over the years. A directive to “photograph what you love” began Lisa’s pursuit of horse photography. Inspired by the moving imagery of Tony Stromberg’s photography and Roberto Dutesco’s Sable Island’s wild horse photography, Lisa began pilgrimages to the Outer Banks of North Carolina and elsewhere which melded her deep love of the sea, horses and photography and continues on to this day. Her award-winning work has been exhibited in group exhibitions, solo shows, and prestigious equine events and is represented by several fine art galleries in the US.
Lisa moved to the US in 1996 and lives in Vermont with her husband and Rhodesian Ridgebacks.
