In April 2020, Lisa completed her certification in Therapeutic Art Life Coaching.

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 am a full time art-prenuer, living in the mid-west with a passion for art, photography, travel and the outdoors. I live in Maple Grove, Minnesota with my wonderful husband. 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, Graphic Design studio. In 2018, I founded Art Soul Living, a place 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. I have had the privilege of playing on many stages as a cellist, the most memorable have been at the Northrop with Twila Paris and at the Ordway with Nachito Hererra. After college, the main focus of my work has been in the field of graphic design.

What’s going on these days?

YourLAKEWALK, a brand featuring photography taken along the shores of local (and maybe some not-so-local) lakes. YourLAKEWALK (both on Facebook and Instagram) 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. It is a way to keep me centered, calm, and focused.

I started teaching classes at the Maple Grove Art Center (now remotely). I recently launched the Global Art Café and am in the process getting certified as an Art-Life Coach; as well as a facilitator for SoulCollage®.
