Lizzie Hobbs creates freehand ink drawings for framing, wall murals, and surface pattern design projects. She is gradually building up a stock of work for sale, works to commission, and also offers workshops.
Lizzie is a self-taught artist from the rural Midlands, and loves to create - it makes her tick. Her artwork began as doodles on scrap paper, and has since been displayed in galleries in Derbyshire and London, won international art awards, and has featured in Vogue magazine.
Lizzie is particularly inspired by Asia and the Middle East which coincides with her degree in South Asian Studies and Hindi at SOAS, University of London; during her travels she collects ideas from architecture, landscapes, and textiles, to create unique pieces reflecting these exotic cultures and their fascinating patterns.
She draws onto any surface she can get her hands on - the patterns can be available as artwork for framing, textile decorations (such as bags, tshirts, and interiors), henna work, and wall murals.
Her freehand pieces, which showcase hand-drawn skills without the use of measurements and technology, range from decorative to thought-provoking. The latter portray messages and have stories woven into them as Lizzie believes that artwork is a powerful method of communication, and likes to get people debating and thinking outside the box about social issues.
As well as working to commission, Lizzie welcomes collaborations and community projects, offers workshops, and is also gradually building up a stock of items for sale.
