My name is Lisa Della Chiesa. I am a graduate of The National College of Art and Design, Dublin where I have recently completed my studies with a First Class Honours in Applied Materials following a Textiles Art and Artefact pathway.
I am located between Dublin and the West of Ireland.

I am a visual artist and maker. I am concept driven, using textile narratives in the realisation of all of my work. I construct my work with zero-waste cutting and source only second-hand or locally produced materials. I am driven by building work for the body and use the body as a site for exploration. I have designed and made wearable sculptures in response to themes such as body dysmorphia, consumption and climate change.
