About the Art of Liz Marshall.

My work is often joyful with lively colours and movement. Women and children take center stage. They are often either holding hands or dancing. Red and its many varieties are special to me, and I am almost always compelled to use them in my art.

I like to keep a sketchbook handy for snippets of time, waiting in restaurants, travelling on the bus, or even standing in line at a cafe. Drawing was always my first love, long before I painted in watercolour or acrylic. I am drawn to creating and sketching images. 

My inspiration comes from my memories. Maybe this is why my work is so layered and intertwined. I am always reviewing and renewing my ideas and artworks. I am prompted to re-work, paint over and collage back into my work until I am happy with the piece that emerges.

Liz Marshall is a visual artist based in Penticton BC. She is also a co-founder of Art Up Studios, Gallery and Gift Bar.
