Liz is a painter, who’s work focuses on painterly, colour-led abstraction. She trained at the Glasgow School of Art (B.A.hons) and later for an MA in FIne Art at the University of Hull. Her current work explores the possibilities of paint: colour, gestural mark-making and ideas that move between abstraction and representation. She has exhibited nationally and currently works from her York studio.
” My grounding in the academic skills of drawing and painting allows me to play between techniques and methods, avoiding repetition and predictability in my work.
My work is not thematic- and is very much based on the studio process of being led by the materials themselves. My interests, life and environment – no doubt – influence what I do. I see the world around me as shapes and colours, offering endless visual possibilities.”
