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.

All Made in Santa Barbara!
