I am an artist and creative practitioner, inspired by the natural world, stories, disused industrial spaces, and the traces that are left behind. I live in the Derwent Valley, in Derbyshire, which has been called the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, and furthermore in a village which hosted a significant wire making industry. This inextricably weaves its way into my work as a site-specific artist.
For me, creativity is a process to share, whether as participant or audience. It can be a powerful way to encourage confidence and well-being, and bring communities together.
With 20 years of experience, working predominantly within the realm of textile art (as Lisa Green Textile Artist), taking part in site specific residencies, creating sets and puppet making for theatre, I have explored various processes including sculptural hand stitching, free motion embroidery, and in the last 5 years, needle felted wool sculpture.
