Hey everyone & welcome to my webpage! I’m Lisa, Artist & founder of “Crystal Alley, Fine Art & Design”.
I am an artist who specializes in custom painted acrylic portraits, graphic design, murals, chalk art, DIY projects & more. I also have a great love for travel & photography. When I am not drawing, crafting or taking pictures, I am a singer at events both locally & nationally.
Over the past 15+ years, I have worked in the fashion industry as a designer for both children’s and women’s wear as well as textile and graphic design for NY based companies. I created the design/sketch for the female Snowflake Princess that was showcased at “The New York Palace” hotel during the 2011 Holiday Season. My T-Shirt Logo designs were chosen for both the 2013 and 2014 Jersey Shore “Belmar Kids Races”. My Holiday DIY Gift wrap segment was featured on NY1 news December, 2014. You can view it below. You can also find one of my recent “NHL” performances of the Canadian & American Anthems under the “Singer” tab within this site.
I received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Marist College (majoring in Fashion Design and Merchandising) & have also studied at Parson’s school of design. I’ve interned under designers such as Zang Toi, Kalinka and Tahari.
I created the name “Crystal Alley” when I was 7 years old. It was my imaginary business for many years when I was a child and I always dreamed to someday bring it to reality!
I reside in Westfield, NJ with my husband and our 3 children.
