Lisa creates exquisite hand painted portable canvas labyrinths and both indoor and outdoor permanent labyrinths. She uses both historic replicas and unique contemporary labyrinth designs, including Circle of Peace, a 7-circuit concentric circle design that blends elements of the ancient classical and medieval or Chartres-like patterns with sacred geometric principles. In collaboration with a school Social Worker, Lisa developed the CrossRoads Problem Solving Labyrinth, a dual path design that utilized mediation techniques to teach peaceful conflict resolution in schools. Another widely embraced design is the Dancing Woman, a design inspired by the ancient Baltic Wheel pattern and developed to represent triumph, celebration, compassion, joy and comfort.
