About the Artisan:
Lisa Krause grew up on a farm in Illinois before moving to Baltimore, Maryland as an adult. After spending years on the East coast where she founded Roots & Sky, Lisa made the move back to Chicago where she is continuing her work creating self-care products in her Ukrainian Village kitchen. She is a permaculture designer by day and soapmaker by night. When not creating soap or working with plants in her garden, you will probably find Lisa helping out at Chicago’s Patchwork Farms.
