Liz Chaderton – ART5 Gallery

Liz Chaderton

Liz Chaderton lives and works in a small village in Berkshire. She works mainly in watercolour, but experiments with printing techniques, particularly lino cutting. Liz is largely self-taught and has been exhibiting her work through exhibitions and galleries since 2009. A selection of her paintings has been published recently.

Inspiration comes from the animals and plants she encounters around her in the fields and hedgerows, growing on the allotment, or living on her (regretfully imaginary) small holding. She aims for her paintings to raise a smile and make you see again the animals and flora we so often overlook. By doing so she hopes to nurture a more caring attitude to the wider environment.

For Liz colour and pattern, not details are her passions. She enjoys how colours work together, mix and interact, along with the texture and pattern in everyday objects and unexpected places. She says that she loves watercolour for its immediacy, vibrancy and the unpredicted routes it can take you down as the paint mixes on the paper.

“I aim to capture the spirit of the subject but also create a painting that contains a part of me as well’.

She has travelled widely and when not painting Liz writes for a number of magazines and organisations, tutors art groups, tends chickens and attempts to keep the weeds at bay on her vegetable patch.
