We’re counting down the days until Poketo’s Pop-Up Shop at Rare Device in San Francisco, where the new Poketo x Lisa Congdon wallets, especially made for the show, will be available! The kick-off party will be held Friday, December 4th from 7-9 PM.
Make sure if you attend to say hello to Lisa, owner and operator of Rare Device, as she is definitely a one-of-a-kind artist! Having only started creating art when she was 33 years old, she’s the poster-child of not requiring a full academic background in art to be successful. Now a mixed media artist and illustrator, Lisa actually uses her lack of training to her advantage; working with her own sense of color, composition and design as her guide.
Lisa’s artwork has quickly grown quite the fan-base, and her work has been shown in numerous cities, including New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisco, and Portland, as well as having been covered by much press and media. Now, you can also see her artwork on the new Poketo x Lisa Congdon wallets!
Lisa currently resides in San Francisco where she operates Rare Device, and works on her art in her studio. With this great new Poketo x Lisa Congdon wallet collaboration, and her 10 lb. chihuahua mix named Wilfredo, Lisa definitely rocks in our book!
