Elizabeth (Liz) Brownrigg has been working with Clay as my medium for over eight years; however, she has dabbled with other mediums since a very young age.
Currently Liz is based out of Sudbury, ON Canada where she is surrounded by Mother Nature’s beauty, which is largely showcased in her sculptures.
Liz allows art to take her on a journey, exposing the several layers of her being, reaching deeper and deeper into her soul to see what beauty is beyond the physical eyes.
Over the years (like many others) Liz's life was about raising her family; working hard to provide for her family, while also finding her path along the way. Liz is proud to say that she is a self-taught artist who began this journey with clay just before her 40th birthday in 2009. In 2012, Liz had an awakening within herself and pushed her abilities further.
2012 Was a major turning point for Liz as an artist, she was recognized for her work by some celebrities as well as she began to get acceptance and invitations to showcase her art work, for example:
