Lise Silva Gomes is an artist based in Oakland, CA. She explores the power of symbols through her work with SacredKnots creating fiber jewelry and wallhangings with handmade cord entwined in knot designs that serve as a metaphor for life experiences, dreams, and deep desires. Her collaborative jewelry designs with metal worker and Spirit Speak tarot creator Mary Elizabeth Evans, called In The House of Lovers, is a ceremonial collection of Artwear where they experiment with innovative design and mythic iconography. As an extension of Lise's exploration in symbology, meditation and visualization are a tool in her creative process. She leads guided meditations as a tool for manifestation, lucid dreaming, mental/emotional balance, creativity and relaxation.
Lise teaches workshops in our Makers Studio. Check out her upcoming workshops here.
Meet Lise and view her work at our artist reception party Thursday, January 18th, 6-9pm.
