Featured Seller Lil Fish Studios 6/14

Lisa has been dreaming about starting Lil Fish Studios for 15 years and officially brought that dream to life in September 2006. She would ultimately like to continue to create, but would also like to create a venue in which she can represent the work of others as well as host classes with guest teachers and speakers.

Lisa has been an Etsy member since last March and made the move from Chicago to Brainerd last October. She now lives on 10 wooded acres with lots of room to run and raise chickens, and hang out the wash. She says it’s a different sort of life compared to Chicago; quieter and beautiful.

Lisa has yet to meet a power tool she didn’t like and a material she couldn’t physically manipulate. Her motivation for crafting is pretty simple. She HAS to. It’s her release that needs to come out and it does in her wonderful creations. She finds inspiration in the color, textures, and patterns it provides her and she’s moved to use as many recycled or re-purposed materials as possible in her craft work. Birds nests, ladybugs, leaves, and natural tones are all common in her work.

You can find calm - turquoise eggs - birds nest pin, brown egg candle, and brick - original ACEO painting through her Etsy shop LilFishStudios.

When Lisa isn’t working on her creations she’s chasing her boys, digging around for rocks, or taking her turkeys for walks in the woods! You may also find her cooking up some deep dish, looking at Etsy or blogging on her blog Lil Fish Studios News.

Check out Lil Fish Studios where you will find her one-of-a-kind creations.

Yea, Lisa! Very nice article about you - and I envy you your 10 acres and room to run around. :-)

I have always loved your little nest pins. They are adorable. But I can't believe you pour candles into egg shells, what a process that must be! I bet they are beautiful though when they burn! :)
