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.
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.
Her first book 'Painting watercolours on canvas' was published by Crowood Press in 2019 and her second 'Painting animals in watercolour' is published in Nov 2020.
