Lisa Swerling is an artist who focuses on creating striking dioramas that focus more on the human condition in general than anything else specifically. Lisa Swerling has essentially found a way to indulge whimsy while still sending powerful messages as well.

Dubbed Glass Cathedrals, Lisa Swerling's work revolves around a collection of shadowbox sculptures that contain each of her miniature worlds. The Foodie Bugle Journal beautifully writes, "They are beautiful, imaginative and surprising works...In a world where we daily crash headlong into harsh vicissitudes, how joyful it is to stop and look at ourselves in miniature proportions. We are all human after all." Lisa Swerling encourages us to look beyond reality to foster dreams and imagination.
