Lisa Brown was born and raised between Washington, DC, and Compton, California.
She had a film camera in her hand at the age of 7. She was inspired by her grandfather, who was a student at Howard Law, but a street photographer in DC in the late 80’s. Photography and darkroom were the first classes she took at the Washington DC Children's museum. Film has never left her spirits as she attended secondary education at Prince Geroge’s College, where she acquired a degree in arts. After college, she dove deep into Africana Studies and was guided by many professors to continue to pursue her education further into the field of visual arts.
She has been recognized by the Pittsburgh Art Society, Black is Magazine, and The National museum of Women’s in the Arts.
