Hi! I’m Lisa, a multi-passionate illustrator living on the sunny coast of South Africa.


If you’re on Skillshare I’m guessing you’re a lot like me! We’re creatively curious, hungry to try new things and want to better our skills.


That passion for learning has driven my creative journey. Mostly self-taught, I faced the same struggles we all do. From finding my own style, figuring out how to make a living as an illustrator, and everything in between!  


I feel super privileged to be able to make a living selling my art online because I know how difficult that journey is. Which is why I’d love to share what I’ve learned along the way with you. And hopefully you’ll walk away with knowledge that will help you further along your creative path.


I’d love to see what you create so please do post your work in class. And don’t forget to use #skillsharelisaglanz if you post on Instagram!


See you in class!


PS. If you’re curious about the art I sell online, you can hop over to my shop. Or signup to my newsletter for access to The Treasure Trove, a growing library of free design resources!
