Lisa Creskey is a ceramic artist and painter who explores the visual storytelling potential of the clay medium through sculpture and installation. Investigating themes of nature, history and time, Lisa creates immersive worlds in which to look for connections and to pose questions on essential concerns for humanity and the environment. Her work is exhibited at the Kaohsiung Fine Arts Museum in Southern Taiwan where she is a finalist in the 2012 Taiwan Ceramics Biennale, and part of the permanent collection of the New Taipei City Yingge Ceramics Museum. 

“My primary drive as a visual artist has been that of storytelling from a personal point of departure or connection. To establish this connection, I often use historical documents and artifacts as a visual point of departure in my work.  As I have spent most of my life in the country, responding to nature and human dependence on the  land are the strongest themes in my work.”
