“Within my work as a whole, I use nature as a metaphor for human emotions. Oh yes, one more thing … I quite like birds.”
Liz creates imaginary scenes using lino cut and screen print filled with the patterns of nature inspired by both the British countryside and the diversity of life found whilst travelling in Africa. She is interested in looking at details of trees and plants, Indian textiles and bird encyclopaedias, and merging these sources to create, wall-paper like patterns that celebrate the English decorative tradition. Her delightful birds are also exquisitely painted on hand picked pieces of wood collected by Liz from shores and coastlines she has visited.
