Artist Statement

With a delicate approach Liz creates intriguing watercolour paintings
exploring the versatility of water with colour and manipulating paint to
create exciting surfaces.
Inspired by travel in Japan Liz explores subject through connection and
space in between. Paintings sometimes include the addition of Japanese
paper on the painting surface.
Liz loves being outdoors and enjoys exploring natural phenomenon
plein air, when weather permits.

During lockdown Liz created artwork inspired by the wildlife in her garden. A ' Garden Visitor ' collection.

Liz continues to be inspired by the recent visit to Japan during autumn 2019.
Through daily assemblage, created on location, during travel in Japan, Liz continues to explore and develop new ideas.

Concept

A painting evolves from inner ideas or external factors.

As an artist I take elements from the environment and express them as one.

Using this concept, in conjunction with symbolism, I assemble fragments.

I create an arrangement that displays the whole.

In some arrangements fragments may be placed at intervals.

Each fragment is unique but connected.

The breaks in continuity depict space and/or time.

I create an arrangement that displays the whole
