The heart and soul of AMARA, Lisa grew up in Toronto, Canada. A passionate traveler, the designer has since given up the city life for warm sea breezes and international culture. Lisa found her creative spirit early in life, expressing herself through painting, makeup and music. With an education in art 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. She intends to use the success of the label as a catalyst into other creative endeavours in film and music. You can find her in eco chic Tulum, enjoying the turquoise waters, sandy white beaches and crafting her next collection.
