About the artist
Contemporary botanical watercolour paintings plus prints and cards.
Liz Shippam began painting in watercolour in 2011, after decades
without picking up a paintbrush. She finds the detail and accuracy
required for botanical work are well matched to her method of
painting, which involves gradually building layers of paint until
the required depth and intensity of colour is achieved.
Liz aims to communicate to the viewer what attracts her
to her subject matter and is particularly drawn to fruit which
changes as it ripens, capturing its transient beauty at a particular
moment in time.
In addition Liz illustrates fruit for packaging and teaches occasional workshops.
