Liz says of her approach - that she prefers to make things which surprise me and prompt the question “where did that come from?”

She is not particularly interested in narrative or realism in her art. Instead, she is trying to bring something new into the world which combines the chaotic, the arbitrary and the awkward.
It seems to her that while we all spend most of our time engaged with the realities of life - from the mundane to the wonderful - we also spend some of our time in a parallel world of abstraction and imagination. Liz likes to get lost (in a nice way) in this parallel world and tries to invent ciphers and shorthand to describe her particular reality.
