Liz Toole

In her recent paintings, Liz has been combining her love of pattern and colour with landscapes, butterflies and birds to create magical worlds that reflect the variety and extraordinary diversity of nature.

Her studio is a crucible where diverse sources are melded together through the act of painting. Photographs, drawings, wallpaper designs and nature books are all combined with inspiration taken from travels in Africa, visits to Kew Gardens and walks on the Sussex Downs. The resulting paintings and prints feel like a place where magical events might occur. Local and tropical birds inhabit fantastical imaginary trees and are immersed in a landscape of lively pattern and vibrant colour.

The starting point for Liz's paintings is source material that includes botanical studies and ornithology books, but once the paintings begin, the images evolve through the process of painting, birds blend with imaginary foliage to create harmonious scenes in an imaginary world.

The prints of William Morris are a strong inspiration, alongside influences from Eastern arts in their use of composition, form and colour.
