Liz is passionate about the preservation of traditional draughtsmanship and the use of specific technical skills. These thoughtful techniques are becoming less and less used amongst todays technologically dominated computer generation. This notion was reflected in Liz's recent solo exhibition Pulsations, The Holt, Sheffield, where a recurring theme was that of the destruction of human behavioural development and interaction due to the influences of modern day technology. Liz feels as though todays audience has been conditioned to overlook certain more subtle qualities that the traditional methods of practice have to offer. She purposefully leaves old fingerprints and marks giving clues to the methods of her practice and to remind the audience that the materials used tell a story of the past and have previously been touched and worked with by hand.
Liz has recently been involved in a varied selection of projects, events and teaching roles, often influenced by music and live performance amongst other ideas and practices.
