Me, Blue Room, pastel on paper, 2018
Liz Smith says: ‘I’ve always seen myself as a versatile artist, with a foundation in landscape painting…but as time passed, and I grew as a person, spiritually and artistically, I discovered that my artistic fervor encompassed elements of surrealism, atmospheric exploration and dream-like transitions.
I could not imagine a world without art…I see art as a healing force for the Universe and the life that inhabits it. Art is, and always has been a friend to me- it is comforting, it is my lover, and my mother…art is the reason I place my feet on the floor each and every morning...it is the driving force in my soul…the reason I draw breath…without it, I would simply wither and blow away. ‘
