About : Lyz Gardner - Artist based in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire



Lyz Gardner is an experienced and established landscape Artist  specialising in Oil Pastels. 

After a degree in Visual Arts from the University of Lancaster Lyz travelled widely throughout the British Isles painting the places she visited. These paintings of coast, wood and dale were exhibited  at The Wolfhouse gallery in Silverdale, Lancashire amongst other places. Lyz then completed a PGCE and  embarked on a teaching career  before settling down in East Anglia to  focus exclusively on Landscape painting.

"Oil pastels offer me the freedom to be spontaneous - I prefer to work with my hands rather than with a brush. I enjoy building up many layers of  the medium , creating texture, that is then etched into with a palette knife or pencil. This process and technique is what defines my work.

I prefer to paint primarily from memory/imagination and  I hope the pieces I produce resonate with the experiences of special places the viewer may have".
