The heart and soul of AMARA, Lisa grew up in Toronto, Canada. As a passionate traveler and adventure seeker, the designer has since given up the city life for warm sea breezes and international culture.
She uncovered her creative spirit early in life, expressing herself through painting, makeup and music. With an art centered education and her experience working on fashion editorials as a makeup artist, the evolution into a designer was a natural progression.
Lisa is passionate about creating a positive impact through the voice of the brand, keeping ethical and sustainable practices at the forefront of her mission.
You can find her deep in the Mayan jungle, basking in the tranquility of nature, curating a conscious lifestyle and crafting her next collection. In the coming years, she will open up her creative space in the jungle to be shared with the world.
