Paper fascinates Liz.  Usually the support for artistic work, it has become her medium.  She tears and cuts, folds and burns, creating an endless variety of shapes.  Shadows are important in her work, giving relief passages life and mood, by cast shadows and creating shapes that move as the light moves, and the intensity of the light changes.  Adding found objects to a work adds contrast and allows the   outside world to enter her work. Her work can be described variously as assemblage, construction, collage, and pyrograph.

Inspiration often comes from the paper itself, its weight, texture and colour; something that just happened to the paper, a form a shape that she can build on.  She finds landscapes as interesting as cityscapes, in shape and mood.  Words and phrases, thoughts and feelings are inspirational too, either on their own, tending to abstract works, or adding feeling and mood to figurative works.

Following a career in Computing, Liz took early retirement to study art.  She chose an HND course because of the breadth of media and content of the syllabus, graduating in 2008. 

She works around an inspiration and hopes it will be appreciated for what it is, an expression in form rather than words.
