About Us

Artist Bio

Lisa Chouinard has been making handmade artisanal soap since 2003.  Her first candle-making kit quickly led to soapmaking, a passion which eventually led her to buy out the local craft store of every soapmaking mold, colorant, and fragrance they had in stock! Lisa's work has been featured on HGTV, PBS and in numerous publications including Rare, Envy, Women's Day, The Chicago Tribune, FHM, Penthouse, Maxim, Bust,  the Austin Statesman & the Houston Chronicle.

Lisa creates the highest quality bath & body products, handmade in small batches in Austin, TX.
- soaps that feature double the amount of shea butter than most handmade soaps on the market
 - innovative solid lotions full of nourishing nut butters
- lip balm
- perfume
- whimsical dessert soaps
- adult novelty soaps
- glycerin soaps with embedded toys

In Houston, Lisa spearheaded the Houston Craft Mafia, a networking group for women owned businesses.  She has been involved with Blue Genie Art Bazaar, Stitch, Maker Faire, & Spacetaker's Winter Holiday Art Market. Lisa was a featured speaker at the Handcrafted Soapmakers Guild in 2009.

She also enjoys teaching soapmaking to all ages from small children to adults – melt and pour soapmaking is an easily accessible medium for anyone interested in a fun and useful creative outlet.  Group and private lessons are available.

These days, Lisa lives in Austin, Texas, and when she's not knitting, crocheting or dancing, she is doing yoga, on the road or at artists markets.
