Liz is a painter, drawer, gardener, bushwalker, photographer, and art educator.
She has a drafting and architectural design background which is evident in the detail she captures as she layers each painting or drawing composition. She invites the viewer to look closer at nature and contemplate its fragility. She has a strong spiritual connection to nature and the Australian bushland and captures the fleeting moments of dramatic interplay between shadow and light, translating her emotional response to the painting and through creative writing. She extends her craft from en plein air sketches, photomontage, pencil and ink drawings, macro photographs, into paintings in acrylic and oil, and lino prints.
She has a deep concern for the land and expresses this through her paintings and environmental activism. Often, there is personal symbolic meaning in her choice of subject alluding to her Life’s path: Bushfire=regeneration, Red flowers and berries= lost loved one, Feathers=messages, Shells=vanishing childhood.
Liz devotes her time to environmental and social issues, bush care volunteering in the Royal National Park, and also to bringing art appreciation to the community through her volunteer art guiding at Hazelhurst Regional Gallery & Arts Centre in southern Sydney.
Liz is an award-winning artist who has exhibited in Hazelhurst Regional Gallery, in numerous group exhibitions, and has held a solo exhibition.
She is a member of Continuum Art Society, Oatley 101 Society of Artists, Combined Arts Societies of Sydney, Friends of Hazelhurst, Royal Bushies Royal National Park, and a volunteer art guide with Sutherland Shire Council’s Hazelhurst Regional Gallery.
