Lisa a has been a Jewellery designer and manufacturer for most of her adult life, starting her own brand in 2001 Argenton Design, which has been going strong over the years, whilst raising 3 children, with her supportive partner Jamie.
Born in South Africa of Dutch, Scottish and Italian heritage, Lisa moved to Australia when she was 10, having roots all over the world, Lisa felt she wasn’t sure where she belonged, but this year has been a very spacial year, as she felt a very deep connection with this sacred land, with her beautiful paper bark trees, ghost gums and amazing water ways.
Lisa is not  a formally trained artist, but  has started to delve back into ceramics, painting and photography over the last 3 years, figurative sculpture is what sets her heart on fire. These works have been created by the guidance of the talented Kat Shapirowood and Antoinette O’ Brian at the Byron School to Art.



"Memento Mori" is a work of art that invites viewers into a contemplative space, urging them to reflect on the transient nature
of life, elements rich in symbolism, have been woven together that evoke both beauty and the inevitability of mortality.
Bones crafted lovingly out of earth are a reminder that we all die and we all are returned back to the earth. A Cecropia Moth symbolise transformation, vulnerability, death, and the search for light.

A lotus Flower symbolises strength, resilience, and rebirth. Morning Glories symbolise love, affection and impermanence. Flannel flowers symbolise purity Cosmos flowers symbolise joy in love and in life.

The birds take centre stage, their wings forming an intricate embrace in the shape of a love heart, and symbolise the duality of life and death, suggesting that even in the face of mortality, there exists a certain grace, continuity and eternal love Gold is used to symbolise the thread of Devine light, that binds and
connects us, and resides in all living things..

Ultimately it’s our ability to celebrate life and death in ceremony, all the stories and beliefs we imagine to be true, and the fact that we are born and will one day die that makes us human.
