Lisa Vincent aka Lisa Golightly is one of the most talented gals I know. We met about 11 years ago, both selling on eBay. Lisa used to paint these amazing signs that stirred up massive bidding wars on eBay. I am more than sure that Lisa gets the credit for starting the "sign movement" that swept the nation! I swear that the reproductions you see in stores like Pottery Barn and Ballard Designs were the influence of Lisa.
Lisa's early work (above) from the eBay days...
I really don't know where to begin since Lisa has her hands in so many things. Whenever we talk, she is in the middle of some new, exciting creation.
Like these whimsical lady prints...
Or vintage ashtrays that Lisa adds her own design... (My spoiled little Vito uses a large one as a water bowl)
What inspires Lisa? Memories from her childhood travels. The ocean. The past. Dreamy glamorous things like fashion, old hotels, movies and music. "If I can't go somewhere or wear something, I will attempt painting it! I love living in my imagination and want to take others there with me." - Lisa
Lisa created this amazing cinema sign from scratch. Can you imagine? It was even featured in a room on Extreme Home Makeover.
She also sells at the Alameda Antiques Faire. Look at this photo she altered, alerting you of her booth number. Creative, huh?
Lisa creates lovely vintage-inspired jewelry...I actually received this necklace as a gift from a dear friend!
Lisa has a blog that is enchanting, and online shop that has many of her one-of-a-kind creations, including some vintage finds...
So, I'm scratching the surface here. I'm thrilled to call Lisa a friend, and always look forward to chatting with her about what whimsical creation she's working on. And, she's very sweet as well!
You can find Lisa on her blog here, and her shop here. Lisa also sells some of her wares on The Paris Apartment's website here.
