Liz Myhill

Liz is originally from the Isle of Skye, a place that instilled an early love of nature and continues to be a favourite subject. Much of her work is completed on location where Liz works in an expressive blend of mixed-media drawing and painting, echoing the spontaneous and unpredictable practice of working outdoors.

Her studio practice allows time and space for experimentation, in particular to utilise a variety of printmaking processes. This time for reflection and development of ideas contrasts with the dynamic and fast-paced thrill of working outdoors but the intention remains the same, to evoke the raw experience of encounters with wildlife, landscape and the elements.

The more remote areas of the Highlands and Islands and wildlife that inhabits them hold a particular fascination for Liz and she makes regular trips into the mountains or along rugged coastlines to observe and draw. In particular she enjoys working with a location over a period of time to better understand its ecology and sense of place.

Liz was elected an Associate member of the Society of Wildlife Artists in 2022 after receiving the Swarovski/​Birdwatch Bird Artist of the Year Award in 2021. She has also been an elected member of the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour (RSW) since 2017 and has received a number of other awards for her work.
