Balance is added to my life when I work through personal emotions and inspiration with visual expression. I use a variety of mediums and subjects, while playing between, illusion, realism, and natural abstractions. I thrive off of creative challenges that inspire me. View Portfolio

A Word from Lisa Marie Burns

A portion of the proceeds from all LMB Artistic Design projects and artwork sold goes to support the nonprofit Heart to Heart with Art 501(c)(3). I founded Heart to Heart with Art to use the combination of the arts and acts of service as a vehicle to encourage creativity, help empower children and to provide a place for them to dream.
