Lisa Vogt never dreamed of being a writer or an author; she was always driven to be an artist. But through her art she found her voice, a reason to write. Because when you’re passionate about a subject, as she is about her glass work, the words won’t be kept silent.

Lisa has been a steady contributor to industry magazines such as Glass Art, Glasscraftsman and Glass Patterns Quarterly, writing feature articles about innovative glass techniques, since 1999. She’s been blogging the extraordinary life of an artist since 2011. Lisa is the author of 14 design books published by SG Images, San Carlos, CA. and CKE Publications, Olympia, WA. She is also the author of 10 instructional videos published by Originals In Glass, Wesley Chapel, FL. She is an active member of the Florida Writers Association and has a published short story, One Good Turn, in the FWA’s 2012 anthology titled, My Wheels.

As Lisa’s artistic talents matured, so did her desire to write creatively. Now, in addition to maintaining a busy glass business schedule, Lisa is hard at work on a novel and hop-scotching between short stories and essays. She enjoys painting pictures with words, making people laugh, making them cry and encouraging them to see the world differently.

Lisa has been expanding her body of work for more than 30 years. She resides in Wesley Chapel, Florida, just north of Tampa Bay, with her family.
