Lisa at Home
Lisa lives in Santa Fe; Venice, Italy; and a 97-year-old writing cabin in the Western Sandhills. She reads, writes, advises clients, edits manuscripts, plays the piano, swims, and nurtures her beloved flower garden. Roses, columbine, iris, lilies, clematis, wisteria, and daffodils are just a few of her resident species. She is an avid traveler in Germany, The Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, and Italy with the goal of absorbing as much language, culture, art and architecture as possible.
