Lisa Marie Bolton


Our mild-mannered accounting assistant, Lisa Bolton, laughs about the spring trek she took with her 83-year-old father — she rode her Yamaha V Star 1300 — from Minnesota to the Rockies and back again: “The farmer types looked at us strangely, riding through half rain, half sleet, half snow … ” The challenge of art drives Lisa now. Her current medium is photography — she also paints, draws, sculpts, and creates stained glass — though she’s switched temporarily to seasonal scented soy candles for the Sunday crafts show. All Made in Santa Barbara!
