Eliza Brown was born in
Manchester and she studied art at Manchester Metropolitan University where she developed her love of painting.
Eliza attributes a significant source of her inspiration to regular stays at her family’s home on Anglesey; where windswept walks along dramatic coastline and rugged beaches, and the bustling fishing villages of North Wales, greatly influence her work.
creates striking mixed media paintings, richly coloured with a simple strong style; words on ripped paper appear occasionally through the brushstrokes of paint, drawing the eye of the viewer.
Eliza’s work has featured in magazines such as Cheshire Life; her paintings have been exhibited in galleries and art fairs around the North of England and Wales, including Harbour Lights Gallery in Porthgain, Pembrokeshire.
"I paint in acrylics and oils, sometimes with a palette knife; and often using collage in my paintings to create a gentle sense of solidity. I think that the use of colour is fundamental to expression. I use colour to affect mood and to awaken memories of things past."
