For thirty-five years Lisa
Hainline has developed the visual vocabulary to say a thousand words with one
picture. For the past three decades, Lisa has produced and directed custom
graphic design for ad agencies, corporations, radio stations, hospitals, banks,
manufacturers, local retailers, and magazines.
She recalls graduating
from high school with a passion for advertising and a meager portfolio.
Pounding the pavement and looking for work, she drew the attention of a
creative director for a large advertising agency.
“He was so
impressed with my portfolio and taken with my passion and drive that he made a
call to a colleague at a local art studio that housed 35 illustrators. I ran 8
blocks and entered into a world of opportunity after opportunity. I learned
from the best while having the chance to be a part of exciting work for
Lisa grew in talent
and skill over the years, owning two private design studios and became the
Senior Art Director for a mid-sized ad agency. Soon after, Lisa went solo,
freelancing out of her home while homeschooling her daughter for eighteen
With daughter newly
married, Lisa has again turned her attention to private studio ownership,
catering to businesses and authors who need the expertise and talent of a
professional graphic designer without the high costs of hiring an ad agency.
A Personal Life,
Lisa dedicates much
of her off-design time to helping people heal from emotional pain through her
ministry website at TheHealingSource.com.
She also spends
time on the joys of her life: her dedicated husband John, and newly-married
daughter Samantha, who is equally creative as well. Moving up the ladder of
loves is her droopy-eyed Labrador named Harley, sometimes Bo, and other times,
Jasper-one confused puppy.
unique talent: Gosh, I use my gifts every
day in design and creativity, and also draw realistic portraits, but how unique
is that? I used to be able to do a back bend to the point of touching my head
with my butt, and was the family “pet attraction” when young, but a fused spine
disallows that now.
something not many people know about you: I had the opportunity to sing
in chamber choirs across Europe at the age of 18 and sang under the conductor
Leonard Bernstein in Vienna
(1976). OMG, did I just date myself?!
to the survey:
you a “pet person” or prefer no pets? No, I spent so much time
caring for my daughter with multiple diseases, homeschooling and in and out of
doctors, that I ended up giving my dog to my lonely sister. Kittys are cute
you rather travel or stay at home? STAY HOME! Done roaming. I have
clients who keep begging me to come to their home for a weekend slumber party,
or event for their book, and my editor nags me into attending a book conference
here or there but I’m still in survival mode, hiding away in the mountains
after moving across country, after many family crisis’s and loss.
you read more or write more? Neither.
cake or pie? Cheesecake or Tiramisu!Or
is that a psychological question with hidden meaning?
or do, ride a motorcycle or prefer to ride/drive a car?
or taxi or walk?none
of the above! Can’t walk far but my husband thought that I needed a big 4-wheel
drive up here in the mountains, considering the hills and snow. The
neighborhood knows when I start that diesel and I can’t park anywhere, so I
stay home more. AND I get too much notice! What is it with men and bright big
you part of a big church congregation or a small church? TINY,
but who have a heart for worship, and the youth, and a ministry to those on the
street. My healing site ministers to many and we pray for healing for those who
want it. We also have a ministry to lead the kids at the RAVES to the Lord (www.plurway.com) and so I’m so blessed to
see the Lord moving and move in that anointing towards the advancement of the

you happy or joyful? I’m an artist. We’re never totally joyful all
the time but are tortured souls. I do have joy in the Lord way more than I ever
have in my life so I guess I could say I’m up and down. J
you eat at home or eat out? HOME! After gourmet cooking for
years, I’m whooped, and as empty nesters and my husband on the road much, I’m
thankful to be released from my food addiction.
to music or prefer quiet? Quiet…enough noise already. I DO
listen to prophetic worship in the mornings as I get into my “Daddy Presence”
time, for worship, prayer and to listen and wait and receive from Him.
sunrises or sunsets?I’m
usually up only for sunsets, however I think it’s amazing to experience a part
of the day that you don’t usually experience, whether it’s 3 am and you step
out to see Orion right above you, or a sunrise like the one I captured on the
way to the doctors’ one morning (attached). Being so not used to the California dry climate and yet amazed at living above the
clouds, every time I get up in the middle of the night I quickly step outside
on my balcony and breath deep and enjoy the night air that is not bitter like
it is in Wisconsin,
where I’m from.I think both sunset and
sunrises are God’s reminder of His light and power, something apart from
ourselves that shows beauty beyond what we can control, and yet signaling new
beginnings, and what needs to be put to bed (the past). I know, sappy, but
since my spinal surgeries, I’ve not been able to see the past or the future,
only able to focus on today. It may be a brain-thing but I choose to see it as
