Elizabeth H. Tudor
Elizabeth Tudor, or as everyone calls her Liz, is an artist working in the mediums of graphite, coloured pencil, acrylic and watercolour. She believes in the pure, clean line beauty of nature, expressed in exquisite detail, texture and colour. Her works reflect her love of animals, plants and insects, and antique objects that hold fond memories.
“I draw everything freehand,- I don’t remember a time when I couldn’t draw, I would draw anything and everything, especially nature!”
Liz was born in 1948 in Oswestry, Shropshire, England. As an only child, drawing and animals became fond interests, especially since the family business was breeding dogs; Great Danes, West Highland and Scottie Terriers. The love of drawing developed further and continued to grow when she and her parents moved to Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
“Living in B.C. can only inspire a deep appreciation of nature!”
Liz and her husband Patrick, have lived in the High Park area of Toronto for over 55 years. Liz is mostly self-taught. She expanded her skills taking workshops with British graphite artist Mike Sibley and watercolour workshops with Celia Godkin at the University of Toronto.
A former member of the Botanical Artists of Canada. Liz has had numerous private shows and group shows, has exhibited at the Papermill Gallery, at Todmorden, the Vanier Gallery in Toronto, as well as participated in many outdoor shows and street festivals.
"My works reflects my love of nature and textures, form and line. All my works are hand drawn, from my own sources or imagination."
