Hey! I’m Lisa!

I'm an artist and a writer.

My artistic expression is my therapy, and I'm always happiest when I have some kind of creative project in the works. Right now, I'm having fun working with watercolors and gold paint.

I’m also an online community manager– come visit me over at KateNorthrup.com. I help run our membership program, Origin™, for women entrepreneurs, I provide customer support, and I teach our audience how to do the same for their businesses.

I've been working in customer service and managing online businesses for over a decade, and I've been been writing and making art for as long as I can remember.

My formal and informal education has revolved around fine arts, women’s studies, evolution and anthropology, environmental health & nutrition, business and marketing, and I have a B.A. in psychology. I love learning, and I'm interested in understanding the world through different perspectives.

Lately in my writing and research, I've been exploring the impacts of the digital era on our current and future generations, race, inequality, and social justice within the U.S., cannabis culture, stigma, and the war on drugs, consciousness, adversity, and resourcefulness. I believe resourcefulness is one of the greatest skills we could ever develop, and that it can get us through during periods of limited time, energy, money, and space.

My husband and I recently sold/donated/threw away 80% of our stuff, left our 1-bedroom NYC apartment, and moved to Southern Maine. Moving out of my home state and growing into this new life has been even more transformational than I could have ever imagined.

This is the playlist I throw on whenever I’m painting and making art. It’s called CREATE., and maybe it will inspire you to create something, too. Enjoy!
