Artist Lisa Lichtenfels is acclaimed for pushing the boundaries of fabric sculpture. Photographs of her sculptures - whether they be fantasy creatures, depictions of denizens of foreign cultures or portraits of celebrities - are often mistaken for photos of living beings. Indeed, viewers of her figures frequently report the peculiar sense of standing in the company of a living presence. With these fabric sculptures, Lisa Lichtenfels has created a new artform - a fusion of her extraordinary technical talent and singular vision.

Lisa Lichtenfels was born near Erie, Pennsylvania. Her early interest in art led her to attend the Pennsylvania Governor's School for the Arts while in high school; she went on to study illustration and film making at the Philadelphia College of Art. The independent films she made as an undergraduate student caught the attention of the Disney studios, and upon graduation, she accepted a position as an apprentice animator at the studios.

While working with Disney, Ms. Lichtenfels began experimenting with stop-motion figurines with positionable bodies and nylon skin. Creating those simple, cartoon-like figures inspired her to attempt realistic sculpting in fabric and set into motion her twenty-year career. She has received numerous awards and grants; her work has been displayed in gallery exhibitions in this country and abroad.
