Lisa Wilson is a metalsmith and jewelry designer who creates a range of work, from sculptural objects to one-of-a-kind jewelry. Drawing her inspiration from patterns in the natural world, she uses an array of traditional and contemporary metal-working techniques in her creative process.

Wilson often embeds thought processes and statements within her work for the viewer to decipher. She says, “I make art because it is an effective means of communicating complex or abstract ideas. I strive to achieve a balance between pure aesthetic value and content within my work and believe that the effectiveness of one is always affected by the quality of the other.”

An Ohio native, Wilson recently earned her M.F.A. in studio art with a focus in metalsmithing at Miami University in Oxford, OH. As an emerging artist, Wilson has exhibited work in local, national, and internationally competitive juried exhibitions.
