Lisa Borton is a Michigan-based theatrical designer who specializes in both costumes and scenic design. She is the resident costume designer at the University of Michigan-Flint and has been teaching there since 2012. Her MFA is from the University of Iowa (Iowa City, IA) and her BA from Hope College (Holland, MI.) Her childhood was largely comprised of making clothes for her Ken dolls (Barbie had all the cool clothes!) and making up stories about mermaids in her pool, which makes an excellent foundation for theatre. Let’s create something together.  

Right Now:
In Fall of 2020 Lisa will teach Costume Design & Stage Costuming, in addition to designing costumes for Ordinary Days in October.
Lakeside Silver , her Michigan handcrafted jewelry business, keeps her plenty busy in her "free" time :)
