I am influenced by my connection to the landscape in which I live and visit. My work is heavily informed by nature from the colors in a sunset to the texture of tree bark to the depth in a rusty patina. I use my photography as an inspiration and often utilize simple images as a representation. My content is generally abstract and focuses on evoking memories and emotions.
I work in a variety of media: kiln formed glass, encaustic, metal and paint. While very diverse techniques, they require heat and time to transform the media from the ordinary into the meaningful, thus, satisfying my need to create with richness and complexity.
Lisa is known for her love of layers and color. In 2004 her passion with glass was launched by a class in stained glass at the Southwest School of Art and Craft in San Antonio. Building her skills in glass, Lisa added Glass Fusing in 2005 and she has been captivated by this exciting, versatile medium ever since. When the kiln is running and she needs more instant gratification, she turns to mixed media and encaustic to create.
Moved by the wonders of nature, her art is full of color, energy and depth. A healthy dose of whimsy is evident in all her work, reflecting her sense of fun.
Lisa is constantly expanding her skills by working with other glass artists in the San Antonio area. She is vice president of the San Antonio Glass Art Guild Association and treasurer of the Bulverde Area Arts Center. Her work is displayed in locations around the San Antonio area and can be found at local juried Arts and Crafts events.
Lisa creates from her private studio in the beautiful Texas Hill Country. She makes her home along Cibolo Creek in Bulverde, Texas with her husband and an ever evolving menagerie of rescued animals. In her spare time, she tends to her garden and enjoys traveling the world.
