Lisa Congdon’s work tickles the wanna-be-Scandinavian that’s been in me ever since I married my Danish hubby. Lisa lives in San Francisco, but her latest work clearly draws inspiration in the arctic – her use of shapes and colors, and her references to the Nordic cultures. Looking at her work makes my mind travel to all of these far away places that I long to visit. Lisa is also the woman behind one of my favorite books, A collection a Day. You can buy her smaller drawings and mixed media pieces in her shops on Etsy and Big Cartel, and her larger paintings are available for purchase on 20×200.
