About the Artist:
As a member of the Barrie Art Club, Liz is very excited to be participating in this year’s spring art tour.Liz’s artistic pursuits over the years have taken her down many avenues. After receiving her degree in commercial art, Liz owned and operated a successful graphic design company in Toronto. It was during this time that she came to the realization that her true passion was illustration. Since then, her work has included murals, portraits and numerous other commissions both public and commercial. Her style encompasses an eye for detail while incorporating an impressionist influence. Liz’s main focus is on creating landscape paintings with oil on canvas being her chosen method. Her artistic inspiration comes from backpacking on the Bruce Trail and sailing the waters of Georgian Bay. Liz also commits her time and talent to a number of charitable organizations. Her paintings can be found in homes and galleries in Newmarket, Barrie, Midland and as far north as Tobermory. Having lived in Barrie and Innisfil for the past 30 years, Liz presently resides and works out of her studio in Penetanguishene.
