Lisa Solomon is a studio artist that moonlights as a college professor and graphic designer. She received her BA in Art Practice from UC Berkeley in 1995 and her MFA from Mills College in 2003.

if you are looking for a fun slightly existential read, this could be it. it's a little over the head for my tastes [the big push about regrets in life, how no life is perfect, how the secret to life is kind of just living it] but it's well crafted a ...more
