Lizzie Wells Art - About Lizzie
I graduated in graphic design from Ravensbourne College of Art and was art editor on magazines such as Good Housekeeping and Ideal Home before starting a career as a mosaic designer. I opened The Mosaic Gallery in Endwell Road, Bexhill but after eight years decided to return to an art technique I had discovered as a student.
My work involves painting paper using mainly acrylics, creating two pictures, cutting them into strips of varying lengths, widths and angles, and then weaving them together to form one coherent image. Colour has always been a major factor in my work, and as paper colours are limited I stretch and then paint Fabriano cartridge paper.
I like the way the weaving and the use of particular colours together can help create the illusion of different shapes, ripples and directions. Patterns in nature - in plants, trees, clouds, water; and places like Sheffield Park - offer a fund of inspiration.
In 2016 my piece Orange Breakaway was shortlisted for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
I'm also happy to do commissioned work and you can contact me about purchasing any piece or to discuss a project.
