Lisa Kurt (that's me!) is an artist and illustrator living and working in the high desert mountains of Reno, NV with her husband and son. She creates cute, playful, and quirky illustrations that evoke mood, nostalgia, adventure, and wonder. 

Lisa enjoys heading off on adventures and road trips in nature with her sweet little family and collaborating on art projects with her son. She also enjoys hearing and creating stories of all kinds and .playing ukulele on occasion.

Originally from Massachusetts, she received her BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design and an MA in Library and Information Science from Simmons College. She has shown her work in cities nationwide including Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Austin, and Reno.

Oh and I am always looking for interesting and fun illustration work. If you have a project you’d like to work on together, please contact me by email: lisamadethis [at]

Adventures ahoy!
