Lisa King left Cape Town when she was 21 to pursue a career in acting and modelling and settled in LA for 8 years. She also travelled around the globe modelling, living in San Diego and London for a few years. The pull of Cape Town was stronger than Hollywood though and she returned home. Opening her first art gallery 17 years ago, she ran that before her Mom took over. Whilst running the art gallery, she started The Lisa King Collection, a range of shoes, which has grown hugely over the last 15 years and gradually took all of her time. She’s looking to launch her own sneaker range in the near future and make a move back into the art world. Amongst all of this, she is also Mom to two beautiful girls. She loves a game of Padel and to walk along the sea front. Her motto is “Love what you do and do it with the ones you love”.
