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:
Lisa is teaching & designing at both the University of Michigan-Flint and her alma mater Hope College for the 2021-2022 school year.
2022 projects include: costume designing "The Play that Goes Wrong" with The Tipping Point Theatre, painting reptile exhibits at the Detroit Zoo, and continually working on her "new" 1906 Victorian home.
Lakeside Silver , her Michigan handcrafted jewelry business, keeps her plenty busy in her "free" time :)
