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 2003  (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 San
Anselmo in Northern California for 11 years, where Glass Cathedrals again flourished. As of mid
2022 I’m back in London, making art and starting collaborations with more energy and excitement
than ever before.

I could never have imagined all those years ago, that 20 years on I would have made
hundreds of miniature worlds in boxes, traveling the world with my bags of glitter,
wooden boxes and and suitcases of tiny figures, making people laugh and cry.
