Welcome to the Circle!

Art Soul Living welcomes you into a circle filled with hope, love and encouragement. It is a place where art touches the soul. Art Soul Living has created practices designed to expand your own circle of influence in this world through art and kindness. 

Meet the Artist

Hello! I’m Lisa Kindle. I’m an 50-year-old full time artist, living in the mid-west with a desire to travel and work remotely doing what I love. I live in Maple Grove, Minnesota with my wonderful husband, who I recently married in September of 2019. I have a beautiful daughter who is attending college – and last but not least, a cat named Ted. He keeps us all very entertained!

What I do 

As an artist and small business owner, I am always challenging myself and making plans for my business. When I first started independently, I left the corporate world in 2006 to follow a long-time dream of running my own business and founded Fat Cat Art Studio. In 2018, my vision took a turn and I founded Art Soul Living, to engage, connect and inspire others through art. I am developing classes, workshops, retreats and products to engage people in the process of art-making to tap into the inner-artist. I am happiest when I see people connecting with themselves and others through art.

Who I am

As an artist, I enjoy creating, inventing and trying new techniques. My favorite mediums are colored pencil, art collage, decoupage, watercolor and photography, along with digital artforms. 

I thrive on creative challenges.  I am passionate about the arts and contributing to the community. I believe in embracing today and living life intentionally, with purpose. I hope to inspire the art within you. 

More Backstory

I graduated from Augsburg College with a Bachelors of Fine Arts, with concentrations in Music Performance, German and Fine Art. After college, the main focus of my work was in the field of graphic design.

What’s going on these days?

Currently, my other project and passion is “YourLAKEWALK”, a brand featuring photography taken along the shores of local (and maybe some not-so-local) lakes. YourLAKEWALK is an opportunity to take time and reflect on life, nature, and the beauty of the world around us. It is a chance to connect with others while leaving the busy-ness of life behind.

Things to watch for: Workshops, classes, and retreats. I am teaching classes at the Maple Grove Art Center and am in the process of planning a women’s retreat to be held in Bayfield, Wisconsin, July 2020.
