D'lisa Creager holds a PHD in social psychology from University of Southern California. She originally began her career as a maker in jewelry, working in different wiring techniques. She was first inspired to work with copper wire on a larger sculptural scale when in 2007, she took a class at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles, with the daughter of Ruth Asawa, Aiko Cuneo. The technique used is commonly referred to as "viking knit." It is an ancient wire weaving technique originally used by the nordics to create exquisite ornamentation and used today in different cultures from making fine jewelry to storage baskets. Dlisa's sculptural wire hangings are made in copper and oxidized copper wire. She lives with her family in Los Angeles.
