Hey Lisa - I'm mostly a technology designer and project leader. This isn't helpful I'm sure, but I like it all. :)


Hi Lisa, as you know, I'm a (former) designer.

I just wanted to stop by and tell you how much I love your passion for the industry. So many people just look out for themselves and don't give back. You do.


Dan and Cat, Thank you for your kind words.

I want to let you know that I'm working on a project that I'm really excited about. I'm starting a new blog at lisamikulski.com. It's not ready to go yet but it is my hope that the new blog will provide various ways of informing and inspiring ways of living and working with art and design. There will be a grand opening FREE Manifesto (pdf) which people can download and many articles and publications on "considering a life with art and design."

Thanks again, I appreciate your support. <3

I don't want to be an apathetic bloagy consumer (that would be someone who reads your blog but never comments), but I've only been following you a short time and it's hard for me to see myself telling you which way to take your blog. So far I'm enjoying it.


Hi Diane,

Thank you for introducing yourself and for reading ArtLOOK. It's nice to meet you.

Nice Things People Say

  • "I believe the success of your INK article is your ability to listen, intellectually collaborate and to make difficult ideas understandable to the public."
    - Gilbert Boro, Sculptor

  • "I am very impressed with the work Lisa has done for us in this short time. She has a light touch, very appealing and attractive, plus real style."
    - Audrey Heard, Art On Groton Bank

  • "I was just handed the most incredible magazine article that I think has ever been written about me. It is just fantastic and people are presenting me with copies of the magazine. Really beautifully written, really beautifully written and no one has ever put all the pieces together as nicely as you have. Thank you so much."
    - David Black

  • "Ok, Don't stand in a doorway when you read this as you may become hopelessly lodged... Hang on to your head, an ego boost attached... I love it Lisa. Spot on nicely done, access-able, significant and of a standard. I'm stoked, can't thank you enough, very happy and impressed."
    - Jeff Lilly : INK Publishing

  • "The Art and Design is written in a easy manner, centred on the design community, and points to discussions I can use...It’s my kind of blog as it keeps on giving."
    - Designers Who Blog

    "I enjoy your writing and will be checking back with ArtLOOK to keep up what you come up with next. I so envy those who can write well."
    - Cat Wentworth

  • "I am glad you are a perfectionist- You have given us a world-class site that will be an asset to The Guide as we move forward and expand."
    - Matt Holmes, The Art Guide

  • "I found Lisa Mikulski to be just the right resource at the right time: focused, professional, with a great eye for color and design, and with very fast turnaround time for getting images up on the web -- an artist's best friend and there when you need her! She's got a really good command of the two worlds we as artists now inhabit: the technical issues of cyberspace in today's market, combined with bottom line issues of artistic judgement. I highly recommend her as a great resource for web design, artistic and gallery management."
    - Julia Rogoff, Artist
