Banff Mountain Art Gallery Manager,Custom Framer and Accountant

Originally from Ontario Lisa moved to the mountains in 1992 and hasn’t looked back. With a background as a Chartered Accountant, Lisa quickly realized how much fun it can be to combine an accounting degree with an interest in Art and Photography.  Living and working in Banff is an incredible privilege and allowing visitors to “take the mountains home”remains a priority in her day.
