Our Story




I’m Lisa Yvette, artist and owner of Creative Allure.

Creative Allure sells soulful, empowering gifts that reflect culture and sisterhood.

I established Creative Allure in 2003 in Berkeley, California.  My first products were bookmarks featuring drawings of stylish ladies, which made for great reading companions!

Inspired by the strong women who surround me, my art reflects a passion for spirituality, empowerment and community.

The artwork is colorful and vibrant – much like my personality!  The work is adored by customers all over the country who continually return to the shop for perfect easy-to-give gifts for their friends.

Today the company resides in Oakland, CA, where I create and produce artwork in my home studio.  Throughout the years, the product line has grown and now includes note cards, bags and other accessories.  The portfolio of artwork has also grown and blossomed into over 30 different collections with more in the making.  After all of these years, the bookmarks are still a customer favorite – and I can even customize these for your book club, church group, business or other fellowship!  Just send an email to find out more.

In addition to my product collections, I am an accomplished textile and surface designer.  You can view the textiles, which are printed to order on Spoonflower, here.
