About Lisa

Born in Cape Town, I moved to London as a teenager. I studied Politics, Philosophy and Economics at Oxford University followed by Art at Central St. Martins in London.

With my husband Ralph Lazar, I packed in my ‘proper job’ and moved to the Seychelles for a year in 1999, where we worked on creative projects that became our creative studio Last Lemon which is still going strong today.

Then one day in 2004 (back in London again), I placed a chewed-up architect’s model inside an Ikea box (as you do) and something magical happened – life was breathed into that little guy and the space in the box seemed to open up to infinity.
I had created an entire parallel universe. Godlike!

After building my unusual business in London – organising my own art shows with my husband
Ralph Lazar and being represented by various galleries on the Art Fair circuit – I moved to the
San Francisco Bay Area in California for 11 years, where Glass Cathedrals again flourished.
As of 2022 I’m back in London,  with regular pilgrimages to Southern Africa.

I could never have imagined all those years ago, that I would spend the next twenty
or so years travelling with my bags of glitter, wooden boxes and and suitcases of
tiny figures, making hundreds (thousands!) of Glass Cathedrals, appreciated by
people all over the this very small big world.
