Lisa Chicoyne is an artist who is interested in the complexity of human emotions and their expression. She looks at the world from the inside-out and is intrigued with the murky, messy parts of life. Trained as a sculptor, her curiosity about the nature of materials brought her to ceramics. She is captivated by the way matter can be transformed through process. Her current work is influenced by textiles, where objects become records of intimate collected histories.
Lisa’s work is in numerous private collections and she has participated in many group and solo exhibitions. She earned her MFA from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and has taught at The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, Pikes Peak Community College, Sugar Maples Center for Creative Arts, Sculpture Space NYC, Mouse Ceramic Studios, Bklyn Clay, and Greenwich House Pottery and The Westside Y where she currently teaches ongoing classes in paperclay.
