Winter & Spring 2022-23

Liza Little

Liza Little joins WNA as our 2022-23 winter and spring artist-in-residence!

In 2022, Liza graduated with a MFA in Sculpture with an Anatomy minor from The New York Academy of Art. Her early sculpture training was with Barney Hodes at The Art Students League of New York. She received a BS in Psychology with Honors and a minor in Biology from The City College of New York. She studied Anatomy at York College while pursuing her Bachelor’s.

Interdisciplinary study has allowed for a critical and theoretical approach in Liza’s understanding of sculpture. Her work has been shown at the Cherry Valley Sculpture Trail, and featured in Ennion, the newsletter from The Studio at Corning Museum of Glass.

After a visit to Corning Museum of Glass just before the start of her Master’s studies, Liza started working with glass. Inspired by the Art Nouveau pâte de verre artists, she began independently researching the technique. She began taking classes at The Studio at Corning Museum of Glass, as well as Urban Glass.
