Lisa's art practice questions how the world is put together in terms of energy, forces and form as filtered through human perception. Exploring through materials, she creates sculpture (glass, fabric, paper, plastic) and uses photography and printmaking to investigate areas where man and nature intersect. Often this process incorporates periods of research into scientific concepts, collaboration or site-specific work. Recent work reflects a growing interest in astronomy and physics.
She has an MA in Art and Science from Central Saint Martins, London and is currently artist-in-residence at Mullard Space Science Laboratory (UCL) funded by Arts Council England until September 2019.
Working from her studio in Surrey, Lisa develops work for exhibition, takes commissions and teaches glass-making courses several times a year. She organises art/science events and is currently on the Moon Village Association UK Committee.
Originally from California with a background in graphic design, she has a BA(Hons) 3D Design in Glass from UCA Farnham UK in 2005. Her work is held in private collections, was selected for The Aesthetica Art Prize 2013 and appeared in the Corning Museum of Glass (New York) publication New Glass Review 35. In 2012-13 she completed two commissions for the National Trust – Lacock Abbey, Wiltshire and The Vyne near Basingstoke. In 2015 and 2018 her work was included in the prestigious Discerning EyeExhibition, London and in 2017 she won the National Open Art Prize Installation Category.
