Liz Somerville

‘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.
