Lisa "Story" Nordin
My name is Lisa, but you can call me “Story”. I am a huge sci-fi and fantasy fan at heart.
My design statement of purpose:
Fashion: My designs are not only visually appealing, but stylish as well, whether they be current or classic.
Function: As a performer and business woman my designs have to function, they have to be practical and functional for everyday life and for their intended purposes. I strive to make high quality, everyday-life-ready creations.
Fantasy: At the core of “Once Upon A Line” is the fantasy, all of my designs are inspired by the whimsical. They may be stories I’ve seen or heard, or brand new stories from imagination, but all of them inspiring magic in everyday life.
I have a minor in Performing Arts from Iowa State University. I started performing at Renaissance festivals when I met my husband Matthew in 2011. My character is “Story”, she is a little story that decided to climb outside of her story book to meet people.
I have been knitting and crafting for over ten years. I have taken several professional courses in photography, design, graphic design, sewing, drawing, painting, and more to help me perfect my skills. I have also taught knitting classes at large and small crafting retail stores.
