We are pleased to announce the return of Liz Sommerville to Ironbridge Fine Arts Gallery. Her beautiful hand-embellished Lino Prints once again fill our Gallery with incredible detail and colour.
‘There’s always a story to the scene, the intention is for the viewer to enter and find it. This appeals to my deep-seated enjoyment of all the illustrated stories I read at as a child. I’m also drawn to the lie and flow of the land,
unexpected colour, traces of past use (modern or ancient), texture and form: the melding of print and paint gives a fluid quality to the image, as opposed to the sometimes static nature of a conventional print.’
Liz graduated from Winchester School of Art in 1988 with a degree in textile design and spent sixteen years working as a designer in London, before moving to Dorset and becoming a full-time artist. Her work has been exhibited widely in galleries and exhibitions within the UK, including The Royal West of EnglandAcademy in Bristol and the Russell-Cotes Museum in Bournemouth.
