Lisa’s view and process as an artist are deeply informed by her years as a Zen student. She engages in creative process as a form of meditation practice. For her, art making is a way to directly experience the sacred, interconnected ground of being and appreciate the potential held within the open space of not knowing.
Lotus Opening Studio is located in Boulder, CO and visitors are welcome by appointment. The studio is open for NoBo Art District and Emerald City Artists First Friday events most months of the year and has also been included in Boulder's Open Studios Tour.
In addition to her work as an artist, Lisa is a licensed professional counselor, a board certified registered art psychotherapist maintaining a private practice in Boulder, CO. She facilitates Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction groups and workshops combining contemplative practice and creative process. For many years she was a meditation instructor and adjunct faculty at Naropa University’s Graduate School of Clinical Mental Health Counseling. She currently teaches a class on the role of art in healing in the Holistic Health program at Red Rocks Community College.
