Liz Sutherland is a painter who makes vivacious studies of the figure and landscape. Working in oils, acrylics and pastels on paper and on canvas she reduces a scene down to its essence and then records this with a bold use of colour and form. Her landscapes and cityscapes aim to evoke memories of real places and with the figure she is interested in portraying a particular mood through their stance or movement.
Liz Sutherland completed a B.A. in History of Art before going on to do a post-graduate painting course at Central St Martins.
Her solo exhibitions include the 2007 Group Show, Highgate Fine Art, London; Chocolate Factory foyer 2006, Wood green, London; the Highgate Literary and Scientific Institution, 2002; Delibar, 2000; the Groucho Club, 1995 and 1997; and the Radcliffe Infirmary, Oxford, 1996.
She has worked to commission on several occasions supplying paintings to offices in the City of London and painting portraits on a regular basis.
Liz organises and runs art workshops for children and is currently available for freelance work. She has an up-to-date 2009 CRB check.
Her paternal grandparents were both practising artists in Scotland; Dorothy Johnstone ARSA and D.M. Sutherland RSA. Liz’s father was a diplomat and consequently her family have lived all over the world. Liz now lives in Haringey and has a studio in the Chocolate Factory in Wood Green, London.
