About the Maker: Lisa is a full time scientific research technician in the area of plant biotechnology and is a part time artist. Not surprisingly it is nature, mainly plants, that inspire her art. The texture and patterns in nature are translated into either linocut print or tapestry weaving designs.
As a printmaker and weaver my designs are often driven by the materials. Also as a weaver I incorporate non-traditional “yarns” in my work. The hanging ribbons inside clothes have no purpose after they have left their shop displays, so again these are being collected by friends and family to be woven into brooches. They add colour and shine into the woven wool background of tapestry woven brooches.
Craft ACT: Craft + Design Centre acknowledges the Ngunnawal people as the traditional custodians of the ACT and surrounding areas. We honour and respect their ongoing cultural and spiritual connections to this country and the contribution they make to the life of this city and this region. We aim to respect cultural heritage, customs and beliefs of all Indigenous people.
