Which art buyer knew in kindergarten that shopping at Target was way more fun than school?

Lisa Crawford, freelance art buyer

Minneapolis is one of my favorite places to visit when I show portfolios.  It is such a fun city that I always make sure to host a party.  It is an event I look forward to every time I go.  No matter if 10 people or 30 people show up, it is always a good time.  The reason is that everyone in Minneapolis is nice.  Everyone.

Lisa Crawford is no exception.  Over the years, between working on projects together, coordinating portfolios shows with her and enjoying her company at one of our parties, I have gotten to know Lisa well. Well, at least I thought I did.  (see below for more on that.)

When she told me that she was headed into the freelance world, I was so excited for her and the opportunities that would come her way.  I suggested that she let me share the news on our blog by way of a post about herself.  Since so many people already know how great she is, I figured it would be fun to share somethings that people had no idea about.  Surprised or not at what you read, please do repost so that everyone knows how great she is and will start considering her for freelance.
