Lisa Goldfinger was born and raised in New York City.  After studying Film at the University of Michigan, Lisa returned to New York and worked in the television business for 9 years, starting out at ABC Good Morning America and then as John Stossel's producer at ABC News "20/20".  Lisa left her TV career and New York City when her first child was born and started painting in her home-studio. She currently resides in Newton Massachusetts with her husband and her three sons. 

In the Fall of 2012 Lisa launched her food blog Panning The Globe. She has put her painting on the back burner for the moment - to focus on her blog. To hear more from Lisa and to find great healthy recipes from all around the world, visit Panning The Globe.
