Liz Abbott

I live beside a bay, amongst hills and valleys, surrounded by sea and sky. This is my home and my work is fed by my physical surroundings. My practice is further enhanced by the ‘crib’ I live in – it frames both my view and my making. As a ‘state of mind’ the crib or bach is reflected in my work – from the variety of surfaces and mediums that I use to the spontaneous and organic approach I adopt in my practice.

Liz works full-time as an artist from her Blueskin Bay studio. She draws inspiration for her original oil paintings and pastels from the landscape around her to form an ongoing visual diary.

A well-known New Zealand painter, Liz has twice won the Telecom Art Awards in the Otago region and won the Cleveland Small Works Award in 2005. She gained a Master of Fine Arts in painting in 2003.
