I moved to St Ives in 2022. 
Energised by the wind, the sea and wild moorlands I now share my time between St Ives and the moors and dales of West Yorkshire.
I am a sculptor exploring painting - my practice is young and my style is experimental.

I am a self taught artist who loved to draw and paint as a child. It wasn't until 2017 when my mum invited me along to a local art class that I rediscovered my love of art. I remember how I felt after that first lesson, it was as though a wave of calmness had taken over me. I was eager to paint more and more.

Liz is a well-established mixed media artist, who exhibits throughout the UK. A sense of place is central to her work, she is an avid beachcomber spending many happy hours combing the beaches & cliff tops for treasure – windfall leaves, shells, driftwood, tiny broken pieces of blue & white china, small polished patterned pebbles, rusty pieces of metal in all shapes & sizes - which will evoke memories and tell stories of time & place.

My artwork consists of semi-abstract landscapes, in which I try to express the coming together of inner and the outer landscapes. I am especially drawn to the Cornish coast with its magnificent, rugged cliff scenery and its ever-changing light. Here I am in direct communication with the dynamic wildness and authenticity of the elements: water, wind and rock.
