Lisa Sheppy is a PhD researcher at the Centre for Print Research, The University of the West of England, Bristol and has just submitted her doctoral study titled: 

An Industrial Craft Reinstated: A Printmaker’s Perspective on Tissue Transferware. 

The study is designed to investigate an obsolete industrial craft; tissue transferware, with the aim to reinstate it through the lens of contemporary printmaking.

Lisa’s art practice involves working with materials and processes akin to craft, with printmaking at the centre. Her research interests are initiated with responses to the overlooked and obsolete from which she reveals new meaning applying material and conceptual innovation.
