Liz Myhill, RSW
Printmaking is a huge part of my own practice, whether as editions or unique pieces, painterly or stylised. Its a great medium to explore and opens up so many options when you get to those critical decision making points in a painting and don't know what to do next...with printmaking you can make multiple versions!
Liz Myhill RSW is a Scottish artist whose observational works span a wide range of subject matter, gathered through working directly from life. The act of walking, watching and recording numerous facets, whether fleeting or through lengthy study, allow her to gain a connection and sense of place. Although often an end in themselves, these field works are also developed into paintings and printmaking. With her roots in the Scottish Hebrides, those islands and other wild places of Scotland continue to fascinate and provide a wealth of inspiration. However, pursuit of creative development and a sense of adventure have led to a number of expeditions further afield. Residencies have afforded the possibility for concentrated periods of travel and making new works which continue to inform ongoing practice. Beginning close to home with a week-long residency on the Isle of Lewis in 2008, she has since worked in India, Cuba, Central America, South America and the USA, sometimes for periods of several months.
