Instructor Lisa Toto moved from journalism to pursue a career in art which she has been doing for the last 25 years. As an art teacher at Amity High School in Woodbridge, CT, her students have consistently placed in the Scholastic Art and Writing and in the Congressional competitions. In her art, she experiments with old photography process and mixed media. Her work is shown both nationally and internationally, including Hartford State Capitol, Sacred Heart University, University of Bridgeport, Georgetown University, and Moscow, Russia. She has also been published in newspapers across the country from the Orange County Register to Boston Massachusetts. She is now beginning to create whimsical unique mixed media work and enjoying the inspiration that comes from the artists with the Kehler Liddell Gallery artists.
