Lisa GravesNorth Attleboro, MA, US
Author and Illustrator Lisa Graves was born and raised in western Norfolk County, Massachusetts, in the small, historic town of Millis. At an early age, Lisa found herself drawn to both artistic craftsmanship and Norfolk County's rich regional history. Lisa's father owned a sign shop, and as a child she would spend every hour she could within its walls, nestled in a corner and expressing with color and craft.
In 2010, after fifteen years spent illustrating strictly for corporate and retail clients, Lisa decided to combine her passion for both art and history once again by launching History Witch, a weekly series dedicated to fascinating stories and portraits of both well-known and forgotten women. Featured Women have included saints, queens, explorers, and yes a scattering of witches.

I recently traveled to beautiful Scotland on a girls' getaway trip. I was incredibly moved by the museum and monument at Culloden. I plan on illustrating more amazing spots from my trip! If you go, don't miss the battlefield- the environmental design is worth seeing!
I worked on this in an attempt to learn more about the Abbey. Hopefully I can take a trip to visit next year- I am pretty sure I will be speechless walking through this much history- which says a lot, coming from a well-documented big-mouth.
