What clients are saying . . .
"The artistry…exquisite - the illustration and design…exceptional - the attention to detail…beyond compare - the quality of service delivery…unmatched. Lisa was referred to me through a mutual colleague and, following months of searching and interviewing multiple illustrators for my project, finding Lisa was truly miraculous. From the moment we first spoke, Lisa impressed me with her professionalism, broad expanse of expertise, passion for her field, dedication to her clients and her willingness to go the extra mile. In fact, Lisa designed 34 card images for my oracle card deck and the finished product was even more amazing than I could have imagined. Though I first hired Lisa to illustrate the deck, it didn’t take long before I hired her to illustrate 3 of my books including book design, layout editing and general publishing consultation. Lisa excelled in all of these areas, there isn’t anyone else I would recommend to anyone creating, designing, writing, illustrating or publishing." —Kimble Greene, PhD, The Monarch Method
"I have worked with Lisa for more than a decade. She was the graphic designer on my three medical books. Lisa's technical quality of the work was exceptional. She is a perfectionist. Every project was completed on time and on schedule. I most value her strategic advice. I recommend her without exception."

"Lisa created my first website and has since been my “Yoda” when it comes to any design. She generated many creative options for my feedback. Equally important was her interest in learning about my business model and market, and creating a consistent motif that truly reflects my vision for my new business. All this she did with wit, humor and her innate artistic gift." —Wendie Larkin, CEO, www.pulse8pr.com
"Lisa helped take my PDF black and white ebook to a powerful, colorful tangible product. Using graphic designing, illustrations, editing and more she was able to propel me to a new level. And it doesn't stop there! She is an expert at creating logos, using color and imagery to specifically brand a product or company she works with. She's the real deal and I highly recommend contacting her, working with her or even just connecting. Thanks Lisa!" — Mark Lynch

"Ms. Greenleaf quickly captures and maintains the attention of her audience with her slide presentation and clear demonstration of how the art is created- from concept development, research, composition, to final publishing. Her presentation was engaging for students of all ages in our audience, evident from their intent gazes and enthusiastic questions for Ms. Greenleaf. After the presentation, more than one student was heard to say they found her presentation personally inspiring. We can strongly recommend Ms. Greenleaf’s school program as an enhancement to the curriculum, especially the areas of art, literature, history, and the creative process."

"Apprentice Shop Books publishes award-winning books for children. One of the primary reasons we can add “award-winning” to our description is due to Lisa’s talents, dedication and total commitment to getting the job done. She is an exceptional fine art artist and a master at Photoshop. She not only designs and illustrates many of our books, she has also created many of marketing and social media pieces including web pages, catalogs, brochures, flyers, postcards, logos and banners, and prize winning, eye-catching trade booths and exhibits. As my art director, Lisa maintained production schedules as well as coordinated print buying and scheduling with print vendors, binders and mailing companies. —Muriel L. Dubois www.apprenticeshopbooks.com
"You did an amazing job on the fine art portrait of Nana & Papa! We gave the drawing to the kids and showed Nana and the rest of the family... many happy tears. It was so emotional. Jenn couldn’t even read the inspiration you wrote on the back of the finished piece. Everyone was so touched. They have already found the perfect place in their home to hang it." —Linda and John Omobono
"I have commissioned Lisa on several occasions for fine art and marketing pieces. She is a master. Her talents as an artist are superb. She has produced three fine art pieces for me, including a pencil drawing, a colored pencil drawing and an acrylic fine art painting. She was also responsible for all artwork, including the design and packaging of my recent music CD project. Her attention to detail is unsurpassed." —Robert Pope, Mondadnock Bluegrass & Folk River Run
