Liz Seward has been painting and drawing all her life. After an early career in scientific illustration and raising a family she qualified as an Adult Education lecturer and taught drawing, watercolours and mixed media for 25 years. She retired in 2003 to concentrate on her own work and freelance teaching and a busy schedule demonstrating to Art Societies throughout the country. Although she retired from teaching in 2014, she still visits Dedham Hall three times a year to teach courses there.
She exhibits widely in many galleries and in London, both at the Mall and Westminster Galleries. Her work has been reproduced as greeting cards by many organisations and she has won a number of prestigious awards. Liz has contributed to several books including ‘Watercolour Plus’, ‘The Artists’ Sketchbook’ and ‘Dynamic Acrylics’ and is a regular contributor to ‘The Artist’ magazine. She was elected to The Society of Women Artists in 1993.
Her still life paints have a light, colour and texture as well as a narrative quality in them that is enhanced by collage. Her landscapes are inspired by the countryside around her home in Lightwater, Surrey.
