Of nearly five hundred thousand residents, Lisa is Loudoun County's 2022 volunteer of the year.
COMMUNITY OF TWO WORLDS
Lisa Jones an army veteran and passionate community committed activist path has been split between the two worlds, domestic violence change and arts activism for over twenty years.
Lisa is an army veteran and the founder of Sip and Shot Us who prefers to work behind the scenes all while quietly sponsoring and producing fundraisers for selected non profits.
The journey of becoming an avid supporter of both domestic violence victims and their support systems as well as community programs geared towards youth development, has created a determination to help raise awareness through various community seminars and to recognize the importance of volunteering.
From various entertainers, athletes to corporations Lisa has developed national relationships
Self taught artist who has created such collections as Wood Illusion, Life and Shattered Glass Collection is widely recognized for her unique ability to capture emotions through her art. She is innovative with her use of materials and ability to manipulate light, shadow, and space to create the illusory effect of her artwork lifting off the canvas, glass, or wood.
Lisa has had the privilege of opening for icons such as Stevie Wonder and her art is currently being featured in various universities and celebrity homes however, she remains most humbled from being Commissioned by the Pentagon to produce a commemorative piece called "Honor 911" in honor of those who lost their lives in the 9/11 tragedy.
