Artisan Profile

Sara Carlisle, born in the United Kingdom in 1958, now lives in Deep River, Ontario, Canada, where she works for Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. She received her Ph.D. in Biology from Queen’s University in Canada, where she studied plant physiology and molecular biology.

Largely self-taught, her interest in art is long-standing. She has been a member of The Valley Artisans\’ Co-op in Deep River since 1996. She has given several workshops on multi-media art in the local public school. While her earlier work focused predominantly on landscapes in ink and crayon, and botanical watercolour (exhibited in Toronto at Canada Blooms (2003) and in New York at the 7th Annual International Juried Botanical Art Exhibition (2004)), she has more recently developed an interest in fine beadwork and hand-made lampworked beads, which she makes herself in her Deep River basement studio.

Sara designs and makes jewellery incorporating her own lampwork beads, those of other artists, semi-precious stones, sterling silver, and a variety of other glass, stone and shell beads, and has exhibited her work at several local group exhibitions in Deep River, Ontario.
