About the artist

Lisa Fingleton is an artist, writer, and grower passionate about intertwining art, food and farming. With partner Rena Blake, she developed ‘The Barna Way’, an eco-social art and biodiversity project on their Kerry farm. Lisa’s journal-style book ‘The Local Food Project’ explores the power of thinking global and eating local.

As the embedded artist in ‘A Creative Imagining/Corca Dhuibhne Inbhunaithe’, a pilot project under the Creative Climate Action Fund, she collaborated with Dingle farmers to address climate change through art. Her 100-foot ‘Creative  Climate Wall,’ created at the 2022 National Ploughing Championships, was exhibited at the Irish Museum of Modern Art during the Earth Rising Festival 2022.
