Lisa Schmitz has a love for the arts. After leaving corporate America in 2015, she created a floral design consultancy Where Pigs Fly and such, which is part of a nonprofit that Lisa and her husband John founded, the Mars Hill Arts Center. As co-founder, Lisa manages the arts center, which is focused on providing arts and community outreach programming for the neighborhood of Mars Hill. Lisa has also been considered “the flag lady” in Speedway, making most of the race flag pennants you see on homes and businesses around town during the month of May. Lisa also runs the social media brand “For the Love of Speedway” which spotlights the good about the town and the race and she has turned it into a fun brand with things like dog collars, kitchen aprons, abstract paintings, and all kinds of fun checkered décor items!
Lisa also co-founded the brand Do Something Indy with her husband, which is an effort to spotlight the good things that people are doing for their communities in the Indianapolis area. They showcase various organizations on their Facebook and Youtube shows.
Lisa’s floral design was recently recognized and on exhibit as part of the inaugural Newfields Indianapolis Museum of Art’s Art in Bloom exhibit in 2021 and has been chosen again in 2022.
In addition to floral design, Lisa is a plaster relief and abstract painting artist. Her plaster art has been chosen by the Hoosier Women Artists Program for 2022 and will be on exhibit at the Indiana Statehouse.
Lisa is also an experienced HR professional. She has served companies like the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Galyans, and finished her HR career as VP of Human Resources for a division of the multi-million-dollar organization of NAPA Auto Parts.
