ELIZABETH SOMERVILLE

Elizabeth has worked and lived in North London for the past 27 years. She responds to her environment finding interest and beauty in often unexpected places. Sometimes this is in an urban context, at other times by the sea and in other landscapes.

Elizabeth works using a variety of mixed media, acrylics and oils, referring to drawings and photographs made while out walking. Images are worked on over a period of time with elements changed as the pieces evolve. Elizabeth is not particularly concerned with topographical accuracy, but still the place is important. Elizabeth hopes that she captures the certain mood and atmosphere of each place through her use of line, colour and texture.
