Liz is based at Phoenix studios, Brighton.
‘In my work, I create imaginary scenes filled with the patterns of nature inspired by both the Sussex countryside and the diversity of life I found whilst travelling in Africa. I am interested in looking at details of trees and plants, Indian textiles and bird encyclopaedias, and merging these sources to create patterns that celebrate the English decorative tradition.
My latest prints have been hand-made in small editions, in Brighton, using the techniques of lino-cutting and screen-printing. The use of coloured French and Indian hand-made papers has also become increasingly important to me.
Within my work as a whole, I use nature as a metaphor for human emotions.’
