Lisa's photography is part artistic expression/ part psychological study. In her art studio/psychology lab, Lisa uses photography to experiment with people and light – all with the goal of bringing beauty out of darkness.
Though Lisa has experience in many different styles of photography, portraiture is her most meaningful work. Even when the clothes are the important thing to shoot - she makes sure the photo is a portrait that showcases the human being wearing the clothes.
Lisa likes rebelling against the notion that “art is about the artist.” Instead, she creates an environment where the subject leads and the art becomes about the subject’s story. She strives to use minimalism to showcase deep emotion.
Lisa was born and raised in Moscow, Russia. Her mother is an acclaimed poet. Her artistic upbringing led her to study the psychology of creativity. She wrote her dissertation on creativity and emotional intelligence and received a doctorate in psychology.
