About Me

 My name is Lisa Gaumond. I live in Connecticut with my husband Luke, and my big-eared pup, Judy.

I enjoy traveling, writing, and taking pictures, (sometimes they’re not of my dog, but mostly they are). I love yoga, the ocean, cooking, stand-up paddle boarding, reading, playing, exploring, and learning.

In 2016, I received my RYT 200-hour and LivFree certification from The Yoga Shop, and in 2017 became a certified yoga instructor registered with Yoga Alliance. You can find me Wednesdays from 5:30-6:30 PM at Tobyoga in Vernon teaching all-levels vinyasa, and on Tuesdays from 10:45-11:45 AM at the Bloomfield Senior Center teaching chair yoga. I will also begin teaching paddleboard yoga later this year, and can be hired for private classes, parties, or outings, send me a message if you’d like more information.

I received my BFA in illustration from the Hartford Art School and worked for myself illustrating and designing full-time. Then, a job, married life, and many other things came up that changed my focus and pulled me away from freelancing for a time.

Making art remains my passion, but stopped being my livelihood for a time.  That cycle has passed and I’m now on a return swing to make creative freelance work a priority.  For a look at some recent projects, please take a look at the portfolio link in the sidebar.

I do love illustration and design, but I also love to knit, craft, and make things with my hands.  Occasionally, those handmade goods are available for purchase in my Etsy shop Lisa Gaumond Designs.  Please stop by and see what my latest craft obsession has produced.  If the shop is empty, it just means that my hands have been too busy and that there will be an exciting shop update soon.

Please enjoy my website and if you have something nice you’d like to say, please send me an email. If you have something not so nice to say, please keep it to yourself, nobody likes a meanie.

Thanks for visiting!
