ABOUT LIZZIE

ARTIST STATEMENT

Throughout my practice I have had a common thread of conveying an emotional journey for the viewer, whether that is exploring scale or color, a questionable subject, or a spacial shift, all while aspiring to present fluidity and beauty. Traditionally my practice has been in painting and drawing, but in more recent years my work has evolved into more sculptural and installation based projects.  With this new transition, I aspire to transform a space beyond the canvas, to engage an environment change, and look to subtly play with the senses for an overall experience.
