Meet Lisa


Owner & Operator of You’re Fired!

Favorite Color: Coffee-n-Cream (but she loves all the clever paint names!)
Favorite Technique: Using Pinterest for inspiration!
Personal Motto: “When people ask why I’m so creative, I tell them it’s because I ate paste as a child.”

About Lisa: I attended Berea College in Kentucky where I met my husband, Brent, of 25 years. Brent can be found at the studio repairing and loading kilns, or teaching at Miami University. We have three almost-grown kids who make us very proud! I had the privilege of being a customer, an employee, and now owner of You’re Fired! and it’s an amazing place to work! I love to create, interact with people, and see people really enjoy themselves in my studio! If you stop by, be sure to say hello!
