Lisa Fam - Melbourne, Australia
Artist/Art Therapist/Healing doll Maker/Writer
Lisa Fam is an artist and healing doll maker who creates mixed media collages and dolls inspired by the beauty of the natural world and the inner mysteries of the soul.
An experienced art therapist and educator, Lisa has facilitated doll workshops and Open Studios for women from all walks of life. Her workshops provide a safe and nurturing vessel through which participants can pass, connecting deeply with their inner wisdom, strength and creativity, sharing stories and engaging hand and heart to create a personal healing doll. This gathering, honouring and celebrating of the feminine is powerful medicine for the soul and for the planet at this time.
Lisa’s current series of Seasons of the Doll workshops focus on how living with an understanding of the seasons and cycles of nature and applying this wisdom to our lives can be healing and transformative. She is excited to be offering her workshops in Australia and online.
Lisa has completed Barb Kobe’s Medicine Doll online course and Mentoring program, and has also studied with Pamela Hastings. She has participated in group exhibitions, showing her dolls and textile art.
