Liz Swan is based in East Devon, an area which inspires her daily. She paints contemporary pieces influenced by the beauty of the sea and sky. Liz began painting in acrylics and recently discovered the delights of oils - falling in love with their rich silky consistency and intense vibrant colour. Last summer she completed a Cornish coastal landscapes course at Newlyn school of art, where she painted ‘en plein air’ for the first time and developed a looser more expressive style. Her desire is to capture the spirit of a place in her work and bring joy her work’s viewers.
