San Francisco illustrator and fine artist Lisa Congdon was born and raised in both upstate New York and Northern California where she grew to love the trees and animals that surrounded her. That love is now expressed most intensely through her paintings and drawings. Lisa spends most of her time making art in her studio in San Francisco with one hand and simultaneously playing fetch with her 10 pound Chihuahua, Wilfredo, with the other. Lisa's work has been shown in numerous cities, including New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisco and Portland, Oregon. Her story and work have been featured in countless print magazines and art and design blogs.
