Lisa Grabowski is a contemporary art jeweller who produces vibrant statement jewellery exploring bold geometric designs and sculptural tactility. A restless adventurer, Lisa is inspired by the unexpected visual treasures that are discovered while exploring the contrasting urban and rural environments of her local area; from the peeling paint of graffitied walls to the bursting formations of foraged mushrooms.
Working primarily in resin and silicone, Lisa creates playful contrast and texture through different inlaying, drilling and casting techniques. Each step of the process is hand crafted and she has created a unique colour palette which makes her work vivid and distinctive.
Lisa gained a BA (hons) in Metalwork and Jewellery from Sheffield Hallam University in 2006. Following a detour into the world of NHS records management and a bout as ‘Super Admin’ for East Street Arts, she found her path back into making and can now be found happily settled in her studio in Leeds.
