Liz has explored painting and making all her life. She works as a full time visual artist from her studio in Sutton, Dublin. While painting is her main passion, she also creates large metal sculptures.
She studied at NCAD and received a Bachelor of Design (BDes) Hons in Jewellery & Metalwork and a Diploma in Art & Design.
She exhibits in the annual ‘Artsource’ painting exhibition and the annual ‘House’ interior design event, both in the RDS.
In recent years her art has received ‘possible’ category in RHA exhibitions while her sculpture has been short-listed by the Craft Council of Ireland and the RDS. A water feature sculpture was also selected for exhibition in ‘Sculpture in Context’ in the Botanical Gardens in Dublin.
Her paintings explore the boundaries between observational interpretation, existing somewhere between external and internal imagined landscapes. This connectivity of space within space has evolved into work using less defined marks, embracing chance, spontaneity and accident.
Some of her paintings are currently hanging in:
Lansdowne Place, Ballsbridge, Dublin
Woodford Dolmen Hotel, Carlow
Caffreys Gallery, Garden Street, Ballina, Co. Mayo
Ardmore Pottery & Gallery, Ardmore, Co. Waterford
