Fine artist and jewelry designer Lisa Anderson Shaffer is best known for fine art fiber installations and her collection of modern fiber jewelry designs for ZELMA ROSE. Named for Anderson’s grandmother Zelma, who first taught a 9-year-old Lisa to cross-stitch and inspired by a family full of wild and creative women, ZELMA ROSE is a place for Anderson to express her love of product design and fashion. With an intergenerational collection of Anderson family needlework as inspiration, Lisa has been creating her own modern needlework for the past 15 years. She holds a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and a MS from San Francisco State University. She is a 3-time California Arts Council Artist in Residence Recipient, along with an Academy of Handmade Awardee for Best Artist in Needlework. Lisa Anderson Shaffer currently resides and works in the mountains of West Marin County, California. You can listen to Lisa in the studio as a guest on CRAFTish with host, Vickie Howell.
