The BOOK SIGNING of ART and YOU: ART FOR YOUR MINDSET on APRIL 13th at THE GALA FOR GOOD fundraiser for SAMARITAN HOUSE was held at The UWC MONTEZUMA CASTLE in Montezuma, New Mexico. The event festivities went from 5:30 to 8pm.
I greatly enjoyed seeing Las Vegas friends again and meeting new ones. In addition to book sales at the event, people brought those copies they had bought online at amazon.com for me to sign. I was honored in all that and in being awarded title of "Good Samaritan" by the Samaritan House board.
It was a memorable evening!
THANK YOU EVERYONE.
LISA PORTER LAWRENCE has been a working artist and art consultant for over fifty years. She has witnessed and deliberately exercised art's influence in a variety of environments and with a diverse clientele. Enjoying approaching new territories the same as a blank canvas that excites her imagination, Lawrence has transformed many spaces according to the intentions of her clients. You can find sample testimonies about the efficacy of her efforts below.
ART and YOU: ART FOR YOUR MINDSET is her first publication, a work that was inspired by a desire to share how and why ART is such a powerful tool so that more people could relish the benefits of employing it with exacting intention and results to impact lives. This drive was particularly empowered by her profoundly memorable experiences in guiding transformations at two shelters in Northern New Mexico.
This book is not a typical academic treatment of ART per se. Rather the author draws upon personal life stories to exemplify her points in a "shooting from the hip" style. She breaks down the broad spectrum of possibilities into 7 manageable categories with easy to understand, bite-size steps for immediate use and results. She offers a simple map to follow with a wide range of both preexisting artwork and suggestions for the creation of art specific to the case in hand. The emphasis is on utilizing art, rather than making it.
Loving a good story, Lawrence also shares a few behind the scenes tales regarding the creation of some of her own work. All examples in ART and YOU are of her own paintings and environments she has transformed. She is currently working on a second book that will go into such stories with more detail, including a wide assortment of unusual life events.

TESTIMONIES, a couple samples excerpted from the book:
Courage, compassion, creativity, and a steadfast, unwavering commitment to fellow human beings are but a few words that give a glimpse into the soul of Artist Lisa Lawrence. Like no other homeless shelter in our state, Lisa transformed an institution into a home, painstakingly ... selecting images and colors, by doing the work - in her conviction to bring hope to those without. Her practice of faith with works will forever comfort those who venture through our doors.
George Francis Lyon, Executive Director, Samaritan House,
Las Vegas, NM
“It occurs to me that Lisa Porter Lawrence looks at the world from a different angle than most people do. Perhaps that is one reason she did such a beautiful job on the painting she did of our house for my husband’s eightieth birthday.
Art shows the way for the observer, doesn’t it? It shows a point of view not immediately noticed or understood by the rest of us. Art teaches, it guides, it interprets, right?
Lisa makes paintings beautifully; she puts the paint down tenderly, intentionally, purposely. There is no hesitation in her work. In fact, the work she produces, it seems to me, is the final stage of a lengthy thought process. Whether this process is conscious or subconscious, it doesn’t matter.”
Connie Ban, Princeton, NJ in referring to the painting, “The Respite,’
