Lissa Jensen is a visual journalist who has filled a lifetime’s worth of journals, letters, and odd scraps of paper with imaginative art and text. Previous to earning an MA in Myth, Literature, and the Unconscious (U. of Essex), Lissa traveled widely, working at the Taize Community in Burgandy, France, homeless shelters in Edinburgh, Scotland, and as a tea-hostess on the “English Riviera,” St. Ives, Cornwall. Published in 13 languages, her work includes a series of Hans Christian Andersen’s illustrated fairy tales, and three series of Famous People of the Bible.
Lissa was amazing, extremely dedicated, talented, thoughtful and knowledgeable. – Paula Lowenstein-Boano
