It is hard not to be bowled over by the works created by Liz Sommerville; her incredible use of colour, on large scale yet incredibly detailed landscape Lino Prints is spectacular. We can’t wait to have one of our Gallery spaces filled with her beautiful pieces and look forward to sharing them with our customers.
‘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 England
Academy in Bristol and the Russell-Cotes Museum in Bournemouth.
