Design Matters from the Archive: Lisa Congdon

Lisa Congdon is a late bloomer. She didn't become a professional artist until she was in her late 30's. She's been professionally painting, illustratiing, and writing for about a decade now and she's still blooming. She exhibits her paintings around the country. Her clients include MOMA, Harvard, and many others. And she's the author of 6 books, including Art Inc.: The essential guide to building your carrer as an artist. Her latest illustrated book is The Joy of Swimming.

Debbie talks with artist and writer Lisa Congdon about how she sometimes felt like an imposter. “At some point somebody is going to realize that I don’t really know what I’m doing or I sort of like taught myself how to do this. Like I’m not really a real artist, I’m sort of faking it.”
