About the Author

Lisa Hoelzl is an artist, teacher and author who lives in Sydney with her husband and two children. In addition to lecturing in art and design, Lisa runs art workshops for children and adults from her studio, an old bakery in Marrickville. During some of these workshops, she realised there was a need for an educational art resource focusing on the rich history and use of recycled and found materials by contemporary and historical artists. Her first book Found: The Art of Recycling, published in 2012, met this need. A second book was always planned to take things a bit further and focus on practical art making projects using sustainable materials. Lisa has degrees in art and design and Masters degrees in visual arts and teaching and currently lectures at Billy Blue College of Design, in Sydney. She wrote this book as a resource to inspire and assist other teachers, parents, artists and children to use recycled materials in their art making.
