Hi, I’m Lisa. I create.
I sort of stumbled into sculpture almost ten years ago. Or I happened upon it. Sort of like a happy accident, really. It’s been an integral part of my life ever since. It grounds me, far off the hustle and bustle of the busy world outside my door.
Working with your hands has something very calming, and the surprising ability to slow everything around you down to almost a standstill. And in this calm my creativity sparks like a giant firefly in the dark.
This creativity runs through my life like a red thread. And while the output on my end has, by choice, been a little chaotic at times, it allowed me to tap into various aspects of creative content creation. Apart from leaving me with various creative tools in my skillset, I learned how to be resourceful and problem-solving oriented when overcoming technical and creative roadblocks.
As a sculptor I am completely self-taught, and apart from private commissions I spent a few years teaching the basics of clay sculpting to others, and it was a great pleasure being able to bring some joy to people’s lives.
If you don’t find me up to my elbows in clay, I’m probably off doing something else creative. Like knitting socks, or building a wardrobe because I can’t seem to find one I like. As long as I can remain creatively engaged I’m as happy as a clam in mud at high tide.
