Lisa’s Artwork Featured on NBC TV’s Parenthood!
Seasons 3 & 4

Fire Bug Poster final medium copyHi, everyone!

Exciting news!  Back in June, I received an email from the Art Department Coordinator for NBC’s television series Parenthood. She informed me that the set designer for the show had seen my artwork on Etsy and loved it.  They had picked out some of my bug pieces that they would like to purchase for use on the set and wanted to know if I would be willing to sign an artwork release.  Oh, and…could I get the prints to California in less than one week?!  Of course I said yes!

Lisa is Featured in Tampa Tribune’s Flair Magazine

Tampa pop art artist Lisa Landsman is living, in her own words, “the perfect life.”

By Jenny Carey

Her artwork is in demand, she has a wonderful family and a great job. Artists often are disappointed when another vocation takes them outside of their own studio. Lisa Landsman has managed to let it inspire her best work.

The designers chose a bright painting by a Tampa artist [Lisa Landsman] to define the space. “The seahorse painting is a striking contrast to the more serious foyer,” Debbie says. “It draws you into the other living spaces.”
