Erwin was born and raised in the Netherlands, where he worked as a RN. He decided to change his career path to give room to his more artistic side, after he moved to the US and went back to school. Erwin tried his hand at interior design, but it made him feel more like a director than a creator. So he began to craft the furniture that he wanted to place in these planned interiors. He worked as a furniture designer/maker on his own for 2 years, soon to discover that the restrictions of the need of functionality steered him more towards sculptural work. After taking his masters, focusing on wood sculpture, he has been privileged to work in his own studio creating pieces with total artistic freedom.

Lisa's work centers around self-portraiture and continually explores the duality of Self. She experiments with photographic manipulation as her work contains and references surrealism elements and dreamlike imagery.
