Lisa Marie Gonzalez
I am the founder and artist behind Keys to Design & Photography. Although based in southwest Florida, USA, I enjoy traveling, so my services are not bound to one location. Creativity comes to me through many forms, but my main inspiration stems from fairytales and stories.
I am wheelchair bound, but I do not let that affect my art. I have been told all my life that there are things that I will never be able to do, but this did not stop me from pushing myself to try. This contributed to the development of my artistic passion and identity. Although drawn to many mediums, I am most passionate about photography and digital design. I would classify myself as a natural light photographer, with a primary focus on fine art photography. Bringing my ideas and stories to life and creating memorable pieces such as custom designs for clients gives me joy.
Since I was a kid, I have been interested in photography. I remember always using any money I received for Christmas or my birthday to buy myself a disposable camera to take pictures of places, scenery, and my friends. I have always loved capturing moments.
It was not until my sophomore year in college that I could finally afford my own DSLR camera. That was the moment when I truly saw the possibilities of this art form and I was completely captivated. Not long after that, I created my first fine art photo and have not looked back since. Photography makes my soul smile. Creating images that tell stories and expressing visual poetry takes me to my happy place.
