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.
Working from her studio in Surrey, Lisa develops work for exhibition, works to commission and teaches glass-making courses. She has an MA in Art and Science from Central Saint Martins, London and will be Artist in Residence at Mullard Space Science Laboratory from September 2018.
Originally from California with a background in graphic design, she has a BA(Hons) 3D Design in Glass from UCA Farnham 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 – at Lacock Abbey, Wiltshire and The Vyne near Basingstoke. In 2015 her work was included in the prestigious Discerning Eye exhibition in London and she taught a master class at the International Festival of Glass in Stourbridge UK. In 2017 she won the National Open Art Prize Installation Category.
