Textiles Anyone?

Liz Powell

Liz Powell is a mixed media fibre artist who uses her hand made paper as the basis of her work. She studied sculpture and print making at the National Art School and became addicted to paper making in a workshop with Kathy Nix. She has been an exhibiting artist for over twenty years and has taught a range of art practices at secondary and tertiary levels, including tutoring at Textile Fibre Forums in Victoria, NSW and Queensland. Her work explores the versatility of plant fibre papers she makes from her local environment as well as imported fibre.

Liz is known for her quirky and eclectic approach to materials and themes and has recently mounted two solo exhibitions in the last year, in Brisbane and on the Far North Coast of NSW, where she lives. She has regularly exhibited in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne and has been published in “Textile Fibre Forum” magazines, catalogues and “The Deckle Edge”.
