In this episode of CRAFT-ish Vickie talks with artist Lisa Anderson Shaffer about creativity, motherhood, how we as women need to stop competing with each other, and how the definition of success if purely personal.
Fine artist and jewelry designer, Lisa Anderson Shaffer is best known for her modern needlework jewelry designs for Zelma Rose and her fine art needlework installations. Taught by her grandmother Zelma, Lisa first learned to cross stitch at 9 years old and immediately fell in love with the attention to detail and slow nature of the process. With an intergenerational collection of Anderson family needlework as her inspiration, Lisa has been creating her own modern needlework for the past 15 years. As an artist she has partnered with creative companies like Etsy, ModCloth, West Elm, The American Museum of Natural History, SFMoMA, and Tiny Prints. She currently contributes to Martha Stewart Living as a West Coast Expert Contributor and Wayfair as a featured style Homemaker. Lisa holds a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and a MS from San Francisco State University and is a 3 time California Arts Council Artist in Residence Recipient, along with an Academy of Handmade Awardee for Best Artist in Needlework. Lisa speaks at creative conferences and teaches needlework and best business practices for artists across the country. She currently resides and works in the mountains of Marin County, California.
