Born in Woodville, South Australia, Liz’s artwork compositions are inspired from the artists love of nature and wildlife. The importance of conservation is communicated through exploring nature’s beauty and its hidden power that she admires. Liz adopts a variation of the Japanese style of Shinto or animism, applying stylistic design, textures and colour to create an emotional visual experience. Painting au premier coup (wet on wet) allows the chemical elements of the paint to feature in the artwork. Liz enjoys a blend of impressionism and realism for emotional aesthetics she wishes to convey in her artwork and to provide ironic commentary on life. The artist likes to provide a discovery of symbiotic relationships between wildlife and nature and mankind and commentary on their interconnectedness. Study of nature or photographs as well as drawing concepts in sketchbook help conceptualise ideas for her artwork.
