We are so excited to welcome Lisa Congdon in PERSON this Thursday the 21st for the next installment of Show & Tell. Lisa is in town and will be signing copies of her NEW BOOK at Land Gallery on Friday. Go and buy a book! Have her sign it! In the meantime, come to room 160 at noon on Thursday and say hello and look and listen as Lisa talks about her work.
Lisa Congdon is a San Francisco-based illustrator and fine artist. Raised in both upstate New York and Northern California, she grew to love the trees and animals that surrounded her. That love is now expressed most intensely through her paintings and drawings. Lisa comes from a family of creative people and has been making things with her hands since she was a little girl, but she did not begin painting until she was 33 years old. Years later, it's how she makes her living. Her clients include Chronicle Books, Running Press, Harper Collins Publishing, Target, Pottery Barn Teen, Urban Outfitters, and Random House Publishing. Her work is shown in galleries across the US.
Lisa lives in the Mission District of San Francisco with her partner, Clay Lauren Walsh, her 10 pound chihuahua, Wilfredo, and her two cats, Barry and Margaret. She works at her studio several blocks from her home. She is an avid cyclist, swimmer and vegan. Lisa is represented by Lilla Rogers Studio.
