Elizabeth is a mixed media artist living in Sydney, Australia with her husband and 3 school aged children. She was born and raised in Auckland, New Zealand where she lived until her early 20s. Drawn to travel (like so many antipodeans!) she left NZ bound for the UK, working in England and France (meeting her husband) before settling in Australia in 2004.
Her love of colour and pattern began as a child and she expressed these through drawing and painting, collaging and stitching. Over the years these forms of expression have evolved and flourished into beautiful works of art. Predominantly
self-taught, Elizabeth has attended numerous art courses and workshops over the years (and continues to do so), learning techniques and processes that have helped her develop her own unique style and
Elizabeth’s inspiration is drawn from the places she has travelled, elements of beauty found in everyday life, a love of pattern, flora, fauna and varying landscapes. Her artworks endeavour to kindle a sensory reaction, telling a story through layers of paint and mixed media.
What began as a hobby has unintentionally evolved into Elizabeth now fulfilling her dream of working as an artist from her home studio. She enjoys painting in a predominantly abstract, expressive style and is striving to achieve a looser, more spontaneous response to nature and the landscape.
