The Breathings of a Writer's Heart

Named after a waitress who served her father pie and coffee on a cross-country road trip, Lisa Jetonne is a native Californian, granddaughter of James B. Lansing, and an identical twin.

Exploring issues related to conservation biology and the histories of place and habitat, she works with a wide variety of materials, including metals, fiber, wood, clay, wax, rubber, and readymade objects, often employing techniques of traditional crafts in the creation of conceptual art installations and sculptures.
