Artist: Lisa McKinney KreymborgShe/Her/Hers

Artistic Discipline: Visual
Location: Spokane, WA

Lisa is the daughter of an internationally collected wildlife and western painter and a renowned biotech director. The mix of the creative and the logical always felt like a pull of two very conflicted worlds.

As a child, Lisa found the quiet solitude of creating art was a welcome reprieve from a rambunctious house with three brothers. Lisa’s drawings and paintings were chosen each year to be displayed in the elementary school art shows at the local opera house. However, art was soon left behind and replaced by college, studying for a career in social work.

After a very rewarding time working with troubled teens, Lisa realized that the color of creativity was a crucial part of her soul. Searching for a path that would lead to the perfect blend of right and left brain culminated in a meaningful journey to being an artist, photographer, curator, and marketing director. Over the years, she has had the pleasure of working with wonderful art establishments such as Where ART Lives Gallery, Visual Language Magazine, Artists of Texas, and The Spokane Liberty Building & Gallery.

Lisa currently lives in Spokane, WA and spends her free time enjoying the beauty of the Pacific Northwest with her EMT husband, 2 kids, and 3 rescue dogs.
