Lisa Marie’s lifelong interests include: philosophy, psychology, and cosmology.
Her favorite quote is from theoretical physicist, Richard P. Feynman:
“This universe has been described by many, but it just goes on,
with its edge as unknown as the bottom of the bottomless sea of the
other idea—just as mysterious, just as awe-inspiring, and just as
incomplete as the poetic pictures that came before.

imagination of man. No one who did not have some inkling of this
through observations could ever have imagined such a marvel as
Lisa Marie states: “the most fascinating aspect of matter, is its capacity to wonder earnestly of itself, and the cosmos.”
Lisa Marie’s art was first published in Stem Magazine commemorating the Total Solar Eclipse on August 21st, 2017:
