Lizzie’s work explores the plasticity, the function and the idiosyncrasies of language, via text, image and object. This interest in physicality has led to textual and studio-based works in which materials interrogate themselves: their back-story and their legacy.
Lizzie studied Graphic Design at Falmouth College of Arts and completed a Masters in Communication Art & Design at The Royal College of Art. She has undertaken various residencies including that of Book Artist in Residence at Women’s Studio Workshop, NY, US; Pearson Creative Research Fellow at The British Library, UK and Artist in Residence at Fiskars, Finland. She has delivered papers about her practice at a number of conferences nationally and internationally including The First International Conference in Semiotics & Visual Communication, Cyprus University of Technology, Limassol, Cyprus; Seeking Inspiration at The St Bride Type Library Conference, London, UK and Text + Image = Message at Plymouth University
Lizzie divides her time between being a Senior Lecturer in Graphic Design and Authorial Practice Illustration at Falmouth University, UK and continuing her own studio practice. She forms one third of Various Writings, with Maria Christoforidou and Dion Star, an arts-based research platform and programme of exhibition / publishing projects investigating acts of writing.
