Elizabeth first started “painting” seriously about 12 years ago when her husband and his artist friends urged her “to have a go” and join them on their field trips. Being intimidated by watercolour and a fan of Dega’s pastels she accepted the challenge and adopted that medium from the outset and fell in love with it. Her main inspiration is colour and shecan go into raptures over the colours of pastels and pastel paper. Elizabeth is also a keen gardener and loves to paint the flowers in her garden.
