About Lisa Blanchard- Boss (Bossy) Lady
Lisa Blanchard owner, and artist has been creating all of her life. Growing up on the coast of Maine gave me a love for the world around me. The middle child of a creative family. We grew up making gifts to give, and quickly learned that handmade gifts received were the best and treasures from the heart. My parents took great joy in things that were both practical and beautiful and have passed that delight to me.
I took my first glass class in 1984, and have never looked back, and continue to add bigger kilns, torches and experiences. There is so much to learn! And create! I enjoy combining my love of art, creating, teaching and curiosity into fun classes, workshops and adventures.
Whomever said, ‘Wherever you go, there you are!’ was surely referring to me. I find inspiration in the places and people around me, wherever I am.
When not in the studio, I can be found gardening, boating, skiing, bicycling, playing tennis, travelling and visiting with family and friends.
