Elizabeth Cadd


BIOGRAPHY

Elizabeth is a self-taught watercolour artist inspired by the beauty of the natural world. Painting outdoors 'en plein air', Elizabeth enjoys the visceral experience of connecting with the natural elements and the landscape. Her intuitive, fluid and sometimes playful approach aims to capture the weather or mood of a time of day or place, whilst also capturing her feelings about that environment. 

Elizabeth's print and collage work develops from her outdoor experiences and sketchbook notes, primarily exploring the variety of memories (emotional, visual and sensual) of being in the countryside or on the coast. Her most recent work has been inspired by a trip to Weymouth during the Olympic sailing events in August 2012.
