About Lizzy Forrester

I am an artist working between my family home in Ormskirk, Lancashire, and my ‘artist retreat ‘studio’ in the Balearics, Spain.  I also always travel with my paints, and often paint plein air. 

Teaching is also important and gives me great joy, ( mainly in my home in the Balearics, but also in Lancashire, for groups, and online via YouTube & soon on my blog.)

I work in many mediums, oils probably being my favourite, and nature provides me with a never-ending source of inspiration, though I also produce a lot of spiritually inspired work.

For me as an artist it is really all about transmitting to the canvas, board or paper the emotion, that vibration in the heart that is life itself.. Light is what it's all about, which represents 'love' itself, or trying to capture a special light, portraying morning or eveing light - the bewitching times, are my prefered times of the day. The seasons, and time of the day string along and create 'series' of works. 

Probably what is the most recurring feature in my work is a deep rooted spirituality. 

Recent commissions:  

A Wedding gift, (an oil painting of ‘The Wedding Reception’ as a gift for the new 'Mum in law'). Another ‘A special place’ for a couple who recently got married (for this they sent me a photo of I believe where the hubby proposed! ) Another, a Spiritual Healing Portrait, with my impression of the sitter's Aura, when I work like this it is oftern for heaing. 

Artist’s statement :- 

When I paint I find complete peace: that is what I hope reaches out to others. I paint from my heart, allowing my spirituality to guide me, not really ‘seeing’, or using my mind to interpret or analyse, but rather sensing or perceiving the ‘unseen’ in nature. For me, it is a meditation through which I try to make visible the beauty in the perfection of life that I sense everywhere in the underlying energies that surround us all. 

Through whatever is happening inside myself or on the canvas, to be able to communicate creatively is a wonderful gift for which I am most grateful and humbled – so I try to do good with it.

I consider myself so very fortunate, very lucky since my works are recognised abroad in many different countries and I am able to make a living from painting.
