Picture: photo of Lise; Link: Lise's biography and résumé LISE
Working with books as an art medium over the past forty years has been stimulating and exciting. Drawn to women’s experiences, both in the political and personal spheres, Lise plays with humour and a light-hearted visual aesthetic to explore more serious feminist and environmental issues.
