Graduating from Rhodes University in South Africa with a Bachelor of Fine Art in 1988, Liz's work has been displayed in various galleries nationally and internationally. Liz is known for her large, bold oil paintings of women of various shapes and sizes, where the sheer physicality of the paint and its manipulation makes for new versions of reality.
Liz moved to Perth from South Africa in 2006 and now works from her North Perth studio. Her recent works of figures on beaches and the landscape of the WA shoreline focus on the relationships people have with beaches. Australia is a nation in love with the beach. Shorelines are places where people leave their busy lives and connect with the vast space of the ocean. Liz believes beaches allow people to let their guards down; they are places of intimacy and socialization and her latest works explore the connections people make with the ocean, shoreline and with each other. The works are thickly textured and painted quickly, giving a sense of immediacy and spontaneity; glimpses of people in a quickly changing environment.
