Elizabeth's formal training at St Martin's School of Art in London took her a long way from the farm in Northamptonshire.

But this childhood amongst the landscape and flora in the heart of the country has played an important role in her work. After studying illustration and painting in London and later textiles at Teachers' Training College in Brighton, Elizabeth combined teaching with freelance work in England and later in Holland.

Illustration work for books and magazines gave way to more painting commissions and exhibitions. Her teaching career involved working with students to 'A' level in all disciplines of art, as well as running art courses in the local community for all ages and abilities.

She specialises in watercolour, placing a strong emphasis on drawing as a basis to all work.


Elizabeth now lives in France in the Normandy Cotentin peninsula, where she has run art courses since 1999.

Her own work involves painting the surrounding land and seascapes while continuing her illustrated botanical diaries of twenty years.
