Got to be loving the PR!!!


LISASARAH.COM – a true New Zealand story of life, love and stainless steel…
Next Saturday, visitors to New Zealand day at Toast on Clapham Common, will be treated the stunning stainless steel artwork created by New Zealand artist Lisa Turley, designer for LISASARAH.COM, which will adorn walls of the entrance marquee at London’s much-revered antipodean festival.

After much critical acclaim in New Zealand, Lisa received a personal invitation from organisers of the hugely successful annual event, which celebrates the best of the southern hemisphere, asking her to showcase her latest range of outdoor stainless steel art, an offer she couldn’t refuse.

The kiwi lifestyle – and sometime summer in the UK (!) - means plenty of time spent outdoors with friends and family, so after a longwinded search for something to spice up Lisa’s newly landscaped garden, the artist was disappointed with the current offering. Having already designed a successful range of fabulously funky word art, Lisa made the decision to branch outdoors with her work – offering weather-friendly stainless steel artworks to complement her wooden word art range.

It has been estimated that around 10,000 people will enjoy viewing her work at Toast on Saturday, with all five inspirational pieces from the range on display having being made completely in New Zealand and with New Zealand materials.

The full range of artwork available includes fourteen pieces - with “New Zealand”, “Kia Kaha”, “Our World” and “Live, Love, Laugh” amongst others, already hitting international success with sales in the United States and the UK as well as in New Zealand.

Recently Queenstown’s Kapa Gallery exhibited Lisa’s work, with the director loving the piece he chose so much he insisted he “could have sold it three times over in the short duration of the show”.

Lisa Turley is also an active community supporter who regularly uses her good fortune to the aid of others. Her business often donates pieces for fundraising efforts such as Starship Hospital and newly founded charitable organisation She is a keen supporter of local kindergartens and also used her skills and time to assist the children of Newmarket Primary design the front entrance of their school.

Lisa Turley says: “I am delighted to have been asked to display my work at Toast and hope that it will be enjoyed by everyone attending on Saturday. I’m hoping this will open up new channels for me to display more of my work in the UK, which I am so passionate about doing.”

Lisa is excited about future plans for her design business, with more representation in galleries overseas as well as further developing her client base in New Zealand.
