A creative polymath, Lisa began her artistic path in Seattle as a graphic designer and art director. In the late 80s, she worked for such luminary cultural institutions as Sub Pop Records, COCA (the Center on Contemporary Art), and legendary local music magazine The Rocket. As the first official Art Director for Sub Pop, she designed Nirvana’s first records and their now iconic logo, helping to define the grunge aesthetic of the time.
She co-founded a design agency in Seattle, where she served as Creative Director and got her first introduction to coding. In 2007 she left the design field for tattooing, developing her unique linework-based style that garnered her international acclaim and a devoted client base.
