Lisa Young is owner, designer, & maker at LKLYDesigns.
LKLY, simply, are Lisa's initials!
For nearly 40 years, Lisa has been weaving baskets and bowls, and tucking little treasures into them. Her fascination began at a young age when visiting a family friend and noticing a row of miniature pine needle coiled baskets on display. She knew how to coil a basket by the next day!
Lisa has been teaching art and craft to children and adults for over twenty five years, focusing on basket making for the past seven.
Today, Lisa's aesthetics in her basketry are informed and influenced by her studies in non-western modern art, folk culture & traditions, her travels, and upbringing in domestic arts (crochet, sewing, loom weaving).
