Liz Picton Contemporary Artist

Elizabeth Picton

About Me

Elizabeth Picton

I am a contemporary artist from Wales, since graduating in fine art I have worked from my studio at the Printhaus in Cardiff. 


With a background in textiles & teaching my current work is primarily concerned with painting & printmaking.

Artist Statement

The impetus for making art work usually emerges during my daily walk in the natural landscape, where I experience a strong sensation of unity with the world.

I make observations of natural phenomena such as light, archetypal form or the intrinsic geometrical order, rhythm & impermanence in nature.


Over a period of time these perceptions gestate and become intertwined with other memories or subtle influences from my daily life. My art practice is an attempt to meditate upon the inherent symbolism and interconnected nature of my environment.


When I begin a new body of work it is with the intention of making visible my perception. Initially I develop a series of many pieces in different media. The work evolves intuitively through a formal reduction regarding composition and palette. The result is abstract and explores the essence of the idea along with the aesthetic materiality of the materials chosen.

Testimonials

Absolutely love my Limited Edition Welsh National Anthem print. It gives a real sense of home in my apartment here in Dubai.

I am the proud owner of 5 pieces of Liz’s art (Anthem, Labyrinth, Path of Venus, Fibonacci Spiral and Hibernal).  I love the way they look on the living room wall, but also love the passionate way Liz described the meaning of all of them to me - which makes them more special. They are all side by side, on different coloured backgrounds in similar frames, making them an interesting talking point with visitors.

I saw Liz's red and gold 'Anthem' print and immediately knew it would be the perfect Christmas present for my parents and both sets of grandparents. Her work is elegant, intricate, inspired by nature and culture, and has made the perfect addition to 3 living rooms in my family! The bespoke framed prints were carefully wrapped, included a business card and a big smile from the maker. She was also willing to do a discounted price for me for buying more than two prints. Great service, beautiful work, and a privilege to support. The Anthem artworks takes pride of place at my parents house!

"Extremely pleased with the beautiful greetings cards I purchased recently. Impressed by the superb quality of the paper and ink that were used, good envelopes and nicely packaged. I felt I was giving a piece of art, not just a card and myself and others have framed them to enjoy them as such. I also purchased the 30 by 30 cm red/gold ink Welsh National Anthem limited edition print. This was a unique and special present to give close friends on their wedding day. They were thrilled with the gift and it has pride of place in their lounge.

I bought one of Liz’s creations for a 2017 Christmas present for a friend’s new flat. It now has pride of place and is much admired. Liz’s distinctive style has provided a unique picture and special taking point. I know where to go for future gifts !
