“Trained as a textile artist, Elizabeth’s work explores memory and story-telling. She aims to unite the darker tones of experience with a delight in the every-day. The work is narrative and inspired by stories: Greek myths, fairy tales, folklore, poetry, life stories and events.

Indigo-dyed fabric is the basis of much of the work: the indigo dye produces many shades of blue, evocative of the tones and moods of the time between the end of the day and the night. Currently Chinese-dyed indigo fabric forms the basis of the pieces, worked on with stitch, appliqué, screen-printing and quilting.

Elizabeth has work in private and public collections throughout the UK, Ireland, Germany and America and has been a member of The 62 Group of Textile Artists since 1989. A graduate of Goldsmith’s College, London (1986), she was awarded an M.A. (Distinction) from the University of Ulster, Belfast (2000).”
