2011-2014 - For three years Lisa worked in the Science Playground at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) where she used every opportunity to better the environment with her artistic skills. For almost a year she was tasked with creating an interactive mural exhibit that targeted non-readers under six years of age. Also featured is the "How Tall Are You" exhibit. All of these pieces were formed from recycled art and very limited time and supplies. However, these eco-friendly exhibits were very successful to get parents and children to interact with science-related material.
How Tall Are You?
2013 - This exhibit was used as a learning tool for children to understand height by comparing their own stature with other things around them.
Rainbow of Food Mural
2013 - This interactive mural designed for OMSI's Science Playground was a collaborative bar graph. Visitors chose the color of their favorite food to make the bars rise. Each food item was hand cut out of re-used and discarded child art. The only new materials used other than the white background paper were scissors, glue, and crayons.
What Lives in the Ocean?
2013 - Lisa designed this collaborative mural using discarded children's art for OMSI's Science Playground to teach children about how the ocean works and what kind of creatures live under it's curtain of water.
Your Favorite Place in Portland
2012 - The idea behind this mural is to encourage expression about the world around us through art. It is also created to inspire exploration. Many people contributed to this mural after Lisa's design was completed.
Creative Writing Mural
2012 - The idea behind this mural is to encourage young readers to become writers. Parents often helped the children by writing the words down.
HUMAN NATURE PHOTOGRAPHY
Since 2010 - Lisa holds a large file of nature photography of exotic caves and outdoor locations from all over the United States. Much of this photography includes human subjects too. Her work has been featured in several publications including the NCA Western Regional Guidebook (2013) and three Extraordinary Women Caver Magazines.
