A figurative portrait artist, Lizzie is committed to capturing the character and personality of the sitter with as much attention as the likeness. It’s clear that detail is key and the harmony between allegory and abstraction is a developing theme. Lizzie studied Animation at Farnham then spent five years dedicated to life drawing at the Académie La Grande Chaumière, Paris. Her passion for portraiture extends through delicate pencil studies to larger-than-life mixed media paintings with a unique exploration through colour and tone.

As a figurative portrait artist, Lizzie looks to capture the personality of the subject, bringing their energy and character to the page. This can be achieved by the pose and composition but also with the application of colour and tone. Lizzie wants to achieve more than what is present and capture a moment or thought that represents that sitter in that instant.
