About Me

My Interests


placeholder-avatar

Hi, I'm Lisa. Outside of being a Designer I have many other interests. I live in McHenry, IL in a beautiful Modern Century home on the Fox River just outside of the Chain of Lakes. I spend a lot of my time remodeling my home,hanging with my dog Abbey or out on the water enjoying the scenery. I enjoy cooking, listening to music and you can usually find me outside in our yard when the weather is nice.

Music

I love listening to music when I am doing anything. I listen to everything from Classic Rock to House Music. Music is a big part of my daily life and it helps me focus when I am working on projects.

Cooking

I love cooking and enjoying making my own new recipes. I grow my own herbs and vegetables in my garden. Cooking relaxes me and I enjoy sharing my food with friends and family.

Photography

Photography started out as a hobby for me but has become a big part of my everyday work. I enjoy taking original images to add an extra personal touch to all my projects.

Travel

I have been all over the world and every year I enjoy taking a trip to somewhere new. Exploring the world and experiencing different cultures is very important to me.
