Heritage — Coast Salish

Lisa Becker was born in Vancouver, British Columbia and has lived on the Musqueam Reserve all of her life. Lisa is the daughter of establish Coast Salish carver Joe Becker.

Lisa's natural artistic abilities were honed in high school art classes. In 2007 she discovered sandblasting. She has worked in many mediums including glass, wood and stone.

Sandblasting of glassware with traditional Coast Salish designs has become her focus of late. In addition to many galleries, Lisa presents her work at Pow Wows, crafts fairs and conferences. The North American Indigenous Games have also been a venue for presenting her creations.
