Following a career in Nursing, studying Biotechnology at The Univesity of Abertay and three years as an Assistant Warden at Loch Morlich Youth Hostel, Liz went on to study Fine Art and Fine Art Development, as a mature student, at Dundee College, when her son began school in 2002.
Liz enjoys the challenge of painting with watercolour from her studio at home, exploring the versatility of water with colour and manipulating paint to create exciting surfaces. Liz is also keen to pass on tips and dicovered techniques through teaching, at weekly watercolour classes.
