"The force that through the green fuse drives the flower drives my green age." Dylan Thomas


Lisa Nishi in hat she designedLisa Nishi studied Fine Art at Washington University in St. Louis, Advanced Textile Design at Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax, and Fashion Design at Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. Her work has been in Vogue Magazine and on the cover of Neiman Marcus, 'The Book'.  Her work has been sold in New York, London, and Paris and is currently on offer at The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Halifax and The Museum of Natural History, Manhattan. Nature has always been the starting point for her designs. Cape Breton Island serves as a rich source of inspiration. "The fishermen here taught me how to knit nets and so I made a mermaid dress from actual lobster twine."


Recently, legendary photographer Robert Frank did a shoot of Lisa's work. See the portfolio.
