Lisa Puzon received a B.F.A. in Graphic Design and Illustration from Auburn University in Alabama. After graduating she worked for a design firm and freelanced. Specializing in corporate design, she produced logos, brochures and ads often combined with her drawings.
Lisa's experience in art began as a youth through the encouragement of her grandmother and an uncle who taught her the importance of the Asian culture and its warmth reflected in history and customs. She began working as art director for a K-4th day camp and there developed an interest and love for inspiring children through the arts. She has taken part in many socioeconomic projects using visual arts as a means to uplift and educate the underprivileged and presented workshops that celebrate the creative and scientific contributions of people of color.
Later, Ms. Puzon taught art in public high school and was selected for Who's Who Among America's Teachers in 2002, a national award based on a recommendation from a successful former student for having made a positive impact in her life.
Ms. Puzon now holds a doctorate degree in Transpersonal/Spiritual Psychology. She integrates art, spirituality and psychology to counsel, educate, and empower children, adults, couples and families of diverse cultural, social and religious backgrounds. She recognizes the potential that art unleashes in the human spirit and appreciates the power of human stories and deep emotions most ably expressed through the arts. As a Baha'i, Lisa is keenly aware of our human oneness and of the interconnectedness of body, mind and spirit. She utilizes art therapy and the principle of transformation to assist others on their path towards health and wholeness.
Her paintings have been displayed in juried student shows at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, Artbeat Alley @ Art Space International in Atlanta, Georgia and most recently at Gallery 88, at the University of West Florida. She is currently serving on the Board of Directors for the Wings to the Spirit Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging the arts in service to humanity.
