About Lisa Blake & Lisa Blake Designs
I'm Lisa Blake, artist, photographer & surface pattern designer. I've always had a love for photography, art, decorating, crafting & entrepreneurship. In college, I took some interior design classes & earned a certificate in floral design, among other things.
A traumatic life event led to a scratchboard class & three years later, a hand drawn Christmas card. In 2006, the Ornament Card, began my annual tradition of drawing Christmas cards to send to my family & friends.
After 17 years of working for a non-profit trade association, I sold my house, gave notice & moved from Chicago to New Jersey. All for love. It was the perfect time make my side hustle full-time.
My art has a strong nature & Ireland theme. My Grandparents immigrated from Ireland & moved back the year I was born. I spent many summer vacations there & it was my second home.
I believe in the joy of snail mail & the gift of connection it provides. I believe in nourishing relationships. I believe in integrity, respect & kindness. I believe in living a calm life surrounded by beauty and love. I believe in doing what we can for the environment too.
In 2019 Lisa Blake Designs LLC was born. I offer hand drawn & digitally drawn greeting cards on 100% recycled paper paired with 100% recycled envelopes, art prints on 100% recycled paper & photography prints.
Lisa Blake Designs LLC is a proud partner with One Tree Planted, a non-profit organization focused on global reforestation. Every order over $10 plants a tree.
