Liz Swan

Liz is based in East Devon, surrounded by a designated ‘area of outstanding natural beauty’ which inspires her daily. She paints contemporary pieces, mostly influenced by the beauty of the sea and sky.

Her work is mainly in acrylics, although she is tentatively experimenting with oils; falling in love with their rich silky texture and intense depth of colour.

Liz also works part-time with children in her church and community and loves to encourage them creatively and spiritually.

“I am drawn to the sea, it’s vastness, the variety and intensity of the blues in the water reflecting the mood of the weather and seasons. My current series is inspired by many happy hours spent on Budleigh beach with my family, friends and walking my dog. I hope these pieces remind others of special times spent on the coast and evoke the sense of peace and tranquillity that I find there. It’s such an honour to exhibit at the Devon Art Show, and a real privilege to support the fantastic work of the Young Minds charity.”
