Lisa R. Nelson is a Massachusetts-based illustrator and watercolor artist.


Lisa R. Nelson has a bachelor's degree in Illustration and a post-graduate certificate in Graphic Design from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design.

As a devoted Anglophile, she has traveled extensively to the United Kingdom and is an avid "Janite" or Jane Austen fan. For her Illustration Degree Project, she did a thorough study of the author's life and career, as well as creating illustrations for all six of Austen's completed novels.

Lisa is also deeply inspired by nature, mythology, and history. She lives in the beautiful rural Nashoba Valley where she enjoys communing with nature while kayaking the Nashua River, biking on rail trails, or volunteering with shelter dogs.

For her latest project, she created the Earth, Moon, and Sun illustrations for the book, Yoga for Witches.
