Lisa holds a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts from Ohio University and a Master’s in Arts from the University of South Florida. She has drawn and painted nearly her entire life and has been painting signs for farms across the United States and Canada for nearly ten years.
Lisa’s custom farm signs, beautifully serve advertising, educational, photo op, directional, and decorative needs for clients throughout the country. Lisa has also done set design and construction for many school theater productions, some logo design, brochure design, and banners for the Climate March in Washington DC and the Women's March in New York City.
That's not all! Lisa's watercolor paintings have been shown in the Broadway Art Center in Albany, New York. She creates fine art paintings as well and enjoys working with medium and subject matter in very different ways from how she paints in her garage studio (lovingly dubbed Studio G).
Many people ask if Lisa wields the power tools too. Yes, she does! However, Painting By Lisa is truly a family business. All the Ettkin's are involved in some extremely important way. Due to the intense amount of hand painting on large scale and relatively heavy work, Lisa has overcome some serious back, shoulder and hand injuries. She has Cindy Lebel, Physical Therapist extraordinaire, her family and faith, yoga and plant based eating to thank.
Lisa lives and works at her home in Upstate New York with her husband, Brian, and their two children - who have grown a lot since this Our Family Tree photo was taken! Jacob is a first-year student in college and Julia is a first-year in high school. Julia is quite the artist and works diligently at her artwork everyday. (No pumpkins though!).
