Liisa Lê Art isn't just about creating beautiful pieces; it's about telling a story, invoking emotions, and fostering a deeper connection with nature and humanity.

My most recent series called, "Sanctuary," stands as a testament to my passion for wetlands and cranes. In this collection, I employ the crane as both a physical and symbolic element, shedding light on the beauty and critical role of wetlands in our planet's health. My work transcends mere aesthetics; it's an invitation to appreciate and protect these precious natural spaces.

As a second-generation Finnish-American, my ancestral ties to the crane run deep. These majestic winged creatures, intricately carved by my boat-building ancestors, represented protection and security for sailors. This heritage has ignited my fervent advocacy for wetlands and cranes, driving me to create art that captures the essence of the sanctuary.

When I paint crane images, it's more than just art; it's a transformative journey and a prayer. My work invokes a sense of connection, serenity, and the enduring power of our interconnectedness with nature. Through the grace and symbolism of the crane, I articulate my heartfelt wish to uplift humanity and preserve our planet.
