Born and raised in NYC, Isora Lithgow owns and operates Isora Lithgow Creations LLC. After spending a summer in VT with The Nature Conservancy’s LEAF Program and visiting UVM through her high school, she selected UVM and now feels, to some extent, that this is her second home base. Her foray into photography began in NYC, where she was part of the NYC Salt Photography Program that led to photography shows, scholarship, and even sales of her work.
