Intro
Lisa Walker was born in 1967, Wellington, New Zealand. Walker studied Craft and Design at Otago Polytech Art School, New Zealand and was a student of Professor Otto Künzli at Munich Arts Academy, Germany. Her work features in both public and private collections across a number of prestigious international institutions. Walker’s work has received several awards including the Förderpreis der Stadt München and the Francoise van den Bosch Award (2010).

Statement

… Lisa’s work might be thought of as the antithesis of one-track thinking. I recently imagined Lisa standing with arms outstretched, absorbing everything the world had to offer her. What comes out is an unadulterated expression of her creativity. In Munich Lisa very deliberately gave herself permission to break down her preconceptions of how she worked – anyone who knew her work before she arrived would know how skilled she was. I remember her saying the opportunity to make without external pressure of income and exhibition would not come again. So during her study there, all inhibitions were off, albeit within the constraint that she would continue to make jewellery.

This statement might be dismissed as a laconic aside, however what it says is how much she values her heritage as a jeweller. Lisa understands and values the precedents of her field, her ancestry and she is absolutely prepared to stand in her place, find her voice and make her contribution. For example Lisa and Herman Junger were intense, mutual fans. / Sally Marsland, 2006

Perhaps I should start making sculpture? Na, I’m too lazy and don’t have enough time – too much work researching all that sculpture history and stuff, jewellery is enough. / Lisa Walker
