Liz's work invites us to wonder what creatures of the future will think about the fossils and traces we leave behind, and what these might look like. Her current work explores plastic detritus as a medium in addition to natural materials.
Liz has been a practicing artist since completing an HND in Art and Design in 2017. She also has extensive experience and knowledge of child development through being a primary schoolteacher and Early Years Adviser for many years, and she has a passion for working with children and families to encourage and explore self-expression, and to develop confidence through the community workshops and drop-ins she runs.
In her art practice, she explores her feelings and ideas around time, the universe and our existence. These ideas are expressed through explorations of locality - traces, footpaths, maps, remains, archaeology and archives. She will use whatever is the most appropriate media, perhaps earth materials, collage, plaster, as well as acrylic, ink etc.
Her experiences as a woman sometimes interrupt these more meditational reflections; at these times, her art becomes more didactic, exploring and resolving more difficult feelings.
