About Liz Green

Image of Liz Green

I am a self-taught contemporary landscape artist based at home and in WASPs studio space in Inverness. My paintings aim to capture the feelings and mood of being exposed and immersed in a landscape. These range from awe and wonder at the overwhelmingly vast scale, beauty and intricacy found within nature to the feeling of relief and escapism from everyday life. My work stylises the shapes, patterns and colours that create essential components of landscape distinctive of a place, a moment and a feeling.

Based on field sketches, photographs and imagination, experimenting with acrylics, oils and mixed media, my work includes both realistic detail and stylised abstraction at differing scales. My previous life strongly informs my work. Growing up in a project-filled home with plenty that was hand-built or allotment grown, sparked an indelible and life-long interest in making all sorts of things. A long career as a botanist, plant ecologist and then garden designer honed an eye for colour, pattern, a sense of place and landscape history.

Being an environmental lobbyist and working with young people at Culloden Academy has enhanced my awareness of the political and persuasive potential of art as well its personal transformative power. In a fast moving and challenging world as I transition away from working in school to being a fulltime artist, I am racing to explore some of the burning issues of our time starting with energy use and abuse, industrial scale fishing and the fate of those disenfranchised from mainstream society. Projects are jostling inside my head which I am eager to get underway ..

My paintings reside in private collections throughout UK, Europe, Australasia and America. I exhibit regularly in Scotland and occasionally further south. I am using 2023 as a development year submitting to open exhibitions and have no solo shows planned until 2024.
