Lisa makes automata primarily from wood creating handcrafted pieces and bespoke commissions.
Lisa's work reflects a humorous insight for the application of movement in automaton that are beautifully made with an added dimension. Each automaton is unique responding with the materials to produce an quality original outcome. Lisa is influenced by historical craft and folk art objects, her love of animals and things that give humour. Lisa's way of seeing and attention to detail results in delightful work.
