Gallery Artisan, Volunteer, At Showcase
Lisa Crews has 40 years practicing and making art. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Arkansas State University. She took Graduate Studies in Ceramics and Sculpture at the University of Memphis and University of Delaware. While teaching art for 10 years in Missouri and Arkansas she learned historical techniques making Mississippian Native American pottery (500-1500 AD). She also learned French Faience and English Delftware pottery from the 17th and 18th centuries. Her current work combines multi-media with pottery, including sculptural pieces to include clothed figures with a more personal and emotional content. Decorations on vases or other forms are inspired by Nature and include luna moths, dragonflies, frogs, birds, cats, turtles and mushrooms.
