Lisette graduated in 2007 with a BA (Hons) Fine Art from Gray’s School of Art, Aberdeen. She originally studied history of art at Kingston University, London and trained as a ceramic artist before raising her family. It was her return to full-time education at Gray’s which enabled her to explore through her work the constraints women often face not being able to do what they want in life, not being able to put themselves first and being caught up in the ‘machinery of life’. Since studying at Gray’s Lisette has won the prestigious David Gordon Memorial Trust Award from the Royal Scottish Academy (RSA),s as well as being awarded the John Kinross Scholarship (also by the RSA) which enabled her to travel to Florence to experience the city’s classical art and architecture. Lisette lives and works in Banchory, Kincardineshire.
