"I completely love working with Lisa. I am a fine artist and she created a wonderful art show opening that was hugely enjoyable and very successful. She is enthusiastic, creative, has an eye for detail and is a great collaborator. She has fantastic ideas and makes everything flow in an effortless way, from start to finish. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to create a very special event."
