Lisa Bayer is a native New Yorker who always loved to draw. Thanks to her grandmother Irma, at a very young age she was exposed to everything NYC offered by the way of museums, theater, ballet, fancy high tea at swanky hotels and most of all, her mesmerizing jewelry. Lisa built a fashion career but never abandoned her passion for drawing. Heavily influenced by fashion and design, on the surface Lisa's illustrations seem very informal, almost child-like, but the proportions and the restrained color choices are very sophisticated. Exaggerated eyes are a key stylistic component.
