Potrait of an Artisan~Transformations

Lise Melhorn-Boe has been making and exhibiting books and sculptural bookworks for over twenty-five years. She has exhibited widely across Canada and the United States as well as Europe and South America and her work is in several public collections.  Lisa also has a passion for sewing and creating funky fashion-wear and cushions from up-cylced materials.

Lise makes t-shirts, tunics, and dresses, and cushions all upcycled from cotton-knit garments and remnants. If anyone is thinking of getting rid of any of the above, please let Lise know and she will be thrilled to make something 'funky' out of the material!

Transformations Ts are on sale at three retail locations:

  • P'Lovers, at 123 Princess Street, Kingston, has several lines of organic clothing, as well as lots of other beautiful and practical things for the home, and for babies.

  • Get Funky Boutique, at 39 Montreal Street, Kingston, has very cool shoes, along with funky clothing.

  • The Ottawa store is called Adorit, and is at 153 York Street, in the Byward Market. They also carry up-cycled sweaters, hats and mittens made by Preloved.

Lise lives in Kingston, Ontario, with her husband, David, a musician, and their son Matthias, Lise's webmaster.
