Who Am I?

Drawn Well LLC is me, Lisa Troutman. I draw ALL the time (illustration, graphic recording, murals, sketchnoting). I live in Minneapolis with my husband, daughter and two pugs, and I work from my creative studio in St. Paul. I travel as needed to serve my clients.

Having come to illustration from a background in product design, I bring a willingness to listen carefully, prototype quickly, and sort through lots of inputs and approaches to create the right illustrative solution for every project, on time and in budget.

What Do I Do?


I produce hand-drawn custom illustrations that amplify important messages, particularly from under-represented voices, making those messages memorable, portable and ultimately shareable.

I teach workshops to empower others to tell their own stories with visual media.

How Does This Work?

Tell me about your project/event, objectives, drivers, and constraints in the form at the bottom of this page. We’ll consider different approaches and align on an appropriate strategy. Then, we’ll execute a project agreement and set to work on all the project-prep, work, and post-production required.

In most cases Drawn Well LLC charges on an engagement basis, identifying with you the parameters of the engagement that will best suit your needs. I typically take on projects with budgets of $3000 or more for graphic recording and murals. I’m happy to share price lists upon request.
