Meet lisA fRosT

 

Nationally recognized artist Lisa Frost’s mission is to spread cheer throughout the land. With her colorful artwork nationally distributed and her sunny disposition through her travel, public appearances, and social media outlets she is well on her way toward completing her mission. Lisa is the owner of Lisa Frost Studio which is located in Rockford, Illinois. As a native and current resident she is dedicated to her art and giving back to her community.

Lisa studied art and painting at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Illinois and earned a Bachelor of Science in Art Education.

Lisa has a magical way of painting. She is a prolific artist working in many different capacities. She can paint portraits, make dishes, design clothing, serene landscapes…She can work in oils, acrylics, watercolors. She can build and design. All the while maintaining a very distinctive look. She is very well known for her Christmas and her banners.

For 14 years, Lisa created a highly celebrated community event in Rockford known as FROST & FRIENDS. Not only did the event promote the talents of craftsmen, artists and entrepreneurs… the proceeds raised from the event were used to fund scholarships for local high school students to attend the Summer in the Art program at NIU. (Since 2005, she has given 83 scholarships to young art students.)

For ten years Lisa held an International licensing contract with national gift company Silvestri. During that time she developed a colorful line of products for holiday and home that were sold and distributed all over the world. She became a top producer for the company.

Two years ago Lisa went out on her own in the national market producing a catalog of her designs and products manufactured locally. Showcasing in the largest trade markets in Atlanta Georgia and Chicago, Lisa has taken on 55 stores nationally.

Lisa Frost pieces have been purchased by Hollywood stars she has been featured on the Rachael Ray show, ABC family…and many local people may remember her presence on the morning show on WIFR with Aaron Wilson or radio on WROK on Saturday mornings.

Lisa is married to local attorney and fourth ward Alderman Kevin FROST. They have two daughters Maddie and Libbie, and two dogs Rockie and Jack Frost.
