More About Lisa Lichtenfels

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! 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 at 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 exhibiions in this country and abroad. A higly repected teacher and lecturer, Ms. Lichtenfels continues to sculpt in her studio, which consumes the entire first floor of an old Victorian house in Springfield, Massachusettes. She shares the second floor with her husband, his large library, innumerable cats and one dog, Audrey.

Lisa Lichtenfels currently resides in Springfield.

Reviews - What do customers think about Figures in Fabric?

Figures in Fabric  Aug 18, 2008
Beautiful! It's hard to believe these are all fabric, truly. Very inspirational! I doubt I'd ever be able to make one of my own but it's wonderful to have on my coffee table and druel over from time to time. Wonderful book!
Awesome!  Aug 17, 2008
How does she do it??? It is hard to believe the dolls won't get up from the page and talk to you. They are alive. Kudos to Lisa. This book does not disappoint.
Figures in Fabric - The Sculpture of Lisa Litchtenfels  Jul 28, 2008
Figures in Fabric is inspirational! The creations of Lisa Litchtenfels are truely exceptional works of art which are beautifully presented in this book, a definite "onshow" publication that will never go on a bookishelf or in a closet. A book to drool over again and again for inspiration and creativity, though I doubt anyone can measure up to her realism and vision. A must for any dollmaker to have in their library.
Terrific book   Jun 4, 2008
I bought this book to learn how these amazing figures were constructed but was even more surprised when my husband "borrowed" it from me as inspiration for figures and the human form for his drawings. I haven't seen the book since!
Figures in Fabric  Jun 3, 2008
What an amazing author therefore an amazing book. The talent of this woman and the passion she has is very inspiring and to think they are done in fabric. I am in total amazement.
