Projects

This section contains my ‘labour of love’ projects, all starring miniature figurines. Well why not? Viewing humanity in miniature proportions helps shift perspectives and makes the mundane magical.

Here, it’s beautiful / 2019

“Here, it’s beautiful” is Lisa's latest collection of Glass Cathedrals containing different perspectives of the San Francisco Bay Area. The artboxes will be shown throughout the Bay Area in the first three weeks of April and the full exhibition opens at Rare Device, SF, on April 26 2019.

The Swerling Circus of Small / 2018

The Swerling Circus of Small is a glittering art exhibition of miniature circus Glass Cathedrals, being held at the Anthropologie Gallery, King's Rd London, this Christmas.

This is what humanity looks like / 2017

This Glass Cathedral artbox was inspired by The Women's March 2017, and the people who've been moved to action to protect our rights, our diversity and our planet. I made one protester every day for Trump's first 100 day culminating on the Climate March on 29 April 2017.
The original artwork was raffled, raising over $3000 for Earthjustice.

The traveling bookbox show / 2016

An unusual touring exhibition of book-themed shadowboxes. Many are now being housed at The Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History in California.
“I cannot remember the books I've read any more than the meals I have eaten; even so, they have made me.”
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Tiny artist box worlds / 2016

Even in this show-and-tell all age, the world of the Artist remains seductive, magical, and often mysterious. “The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.” - Pablo Picasso

One small thing / 2015

In my One Small Thing project from 2015, I made tiny portraits of people who’re doing something to make a difference, nominated by people who know them.
