Liz lives and works in a small village in Berkshire. She works mainly in watercolour, but experiment with printing techniques, particularly lino cutting. She is largely self-taught and has been exhibiting her work through exhibitions and galleries since 2009. A selection of her paintings has been published recently by Artko and Wraptious in the UK and Artwall in America. She will be leading a watercolour painting week with ArteUmbria in Italy (3-10 July 2019) and from 28 October 2019 in India with Painting in Europe and other Exotic Locations.
Inspiration comes from the animals and plants she encounters around me in the fields and hedgerows, growing on the allotment, or living on her (regretfully imaginary) small holding. She aims for her paintings to raise a smile and make you see again the animals and flora we so often overlook. By doing so she hopes to nurture a more caring attitude to the wider environment.
For Liz colour and pattern, not details are her passions. She is writing a book on painting with watercolour on canvas, which will be published in 2019.
She has traveled widely and when not painting she writes for a number of magazines and organisations, tutor art groups, tend chickens and attempt to keep the weeds at bay on her vegetable patch.
