Liz Somerville

Liz is not exhibiting at Art at home 2019

I am hugely exhibited at hLiz has agreed to exhibit with Art at Home – Her work is highly  respected and  has interested me for many years.

Liz graduated from Winchester School of Art in 1988 with a degree in Textile Design. In London she freelanced for print design agents whilst continuing to develop her paintings and prints.

She moved to Dorset in 2004 to concentrate on her printmaking and painting, and has taken part in numerous open studios and group exhibitions since. Inspired by Ravilious, Nash and Bawden, her imagery concentrates on landscape and the incidental forms and structures found within it.

Walking forms a major part of Liz’s work and life. She does most of it in winter, a perfect time to see a landscape, really see it; it’s bare bones, hard contours, un-obscured structures and un-adorned trees. Once back in the studio she draws what she’s seen, using sketches, photos and memory. These drawings form the backbone to her linocuts. From them she is able to really define her subject before refining and translating into a linocut.

She combines relief print with painting which allows her to re-work a single image many times, changing its appearance in each case. She works in a studio attached to her house in a small village in the heart of west Dorset.
