Lisa goes on to talk of the 'hand as an instrument of communication' and how she incorporates this into her work. She has studied 'animal-human' communication and describes her visits to the language research unit at Georgia State University in the US. Chimpanzees were taught to use sign language - one could actually use a computer keyboard to communicate with humans.

Her work increasingly shows the many misunderstandings humans have about the life of the primates. Her work and research have also introduced her to many amazing environmentalists dedicated in trying to encourage sustainable solutions for the world's future development.
Lisa’s Golden Snub Nosed Monkey will be outside the Opposite House through October. A display of her artwork and jewellery can be viewed in the atrium of the Opposite House.
