Lisa Lucca


I believe we are all artists, for art is merely self-expression that evokes emotion. Me? I write.

Throughout my life, writing has been my deepest way of expressing myself. Words are what I use to paint a picture, using bold strokes to make a statement or the thinnest line to whisper a longing. All facets of my life have been drenched in the beauty of language.

That's why I'm here. To share my words, the truth as I know it, and connect with others so they may feel something that brings them joy or understanding, empathy or compassion, or even to piss them off enough to look into their own hearts and ask why. I want to create art that evokes emotion, that heals a wound, or starts a conversation while helping others to raise their voices and live true to the creative beings they are here to be.
