Lisa Otten


I am a largely self taught artist. I am very creative, but have always had to use my artistic "bent" for more practical and "useful & valued" things (home decor, cooking, gardening) so felt like I was unable to develop my art skills properly or get very good at painting and drawing. Although I have practiced my art throughout my 55 years, I have not had the pleasure of being formally trained. I am happy that I have two very talented children who are artistic and have formal art degrees. They are available for advice when I ask. In regards to my art, I am just doing it for therapy and occasionally to help with projects for church and friends. I must do art for my mental health and feel depressed & distant from God somehow when I neglect my artistic gifts. I showcase my work around the house, and rotate it as needed. It is with excitement and fear that I show the world my sometimes quirky style of interpretation on given themes.

Lisa Otten is a wife of nearly 30 years & mother to three adult children. Currently working more than full time she finds enjoyment and therapy through creating pieces or art, sculptures and re-designing her home & garden. She is active in her church, loves adventure and caring for animals. She is a follower of Jesus Christ and believes the bible is God's true word. Oh, and she really likes food, all kinds of food.
