Lisa Craven
2021 Fellowship Award Recipient
Facebook: @lisacravenart


Born and raised in the Hudson Valley NY, Lisa Craven tapped into art and music at a young age, and has been creating personalized art pieces since 1999. Originally, working in acrylic paint with glass mosaic overlays, Lisa’s work featured smooth thoughtful lines and popped with both color and texture.

Now a Sarasota based artist and musician, Lisa’s art has evolved into making jewelry from found natural materials and semi-precious stones. She enjoys working in a variety of media and mixed-media. Her pieces are usually inspired by and created specifically to harmonize with the recipient. When she’s not creating art, she’s creating music or enjoying nature with her husband Al, and their sweet dog Bruno.


I feel creating art or music promotes well-being. I’m inspired to share my experience through art and music with my community in hopes of spreading a message of positivity, inclusion, and creativity.
