A restless nomad, Lisa is inspired by the tones and textures of her surrounding environment be it cracking paint on urban graffiti or the bursting formations of foraged mushrooms. Working primarily in silicone and resin, she draws from her love of graphics to create three dimensional designs that are colourful, tactile and (most importantly) fun.
Each part of the process is hand crafted; from the wooden masters to the silicone moulds to the custom mixed pigments. Lisa uses different inlaying, drilling and laminating techniques to create contrast and texture in her work.
Initially wanting to be a graphic designer, a dislike of encroaching technology and a desire to get her hands dirty led Lisa to switch paths and she found a new passion in the world of contemporary art jewellery. She gained a BA (hons) in Metalwork and Jewellery from Sheffield Hallam University in 2006. Following a detour into the world of Records Management and a bout as Super Admin for East Street Arts, Lisa can now be found happily settled in her studio at Scott Hall Mills, Leeds.
