Lisbeth's work in public collections includes sculptures in Glacier National Park, Montana, and Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado, and Quiet Waters Park, Maryland. Her marble sculpture at Rocky Mountain National Park is a detailed portrait of 14,255' Longs Peak she sculpted after climbing to the summit while Artist-in-Residence in the Park. Longs Peak is on permanent display at the Fall River Visitor Center in Rocky Mountain National Park.

She carved a figurative sculpture out of a 2-ton block of stone which was displayed as a public work on the waterfront in the New Zealand capital.
