Lizzie is a self-taught artist from the rural Midlands. She 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.
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.
