Wiltshire based Liz Watts lived in France for 10 years and studied sculpture and ceramics at l'Atelier des Beaux-Arts Henri Matisse, Creil. "I lived in an isolated house in the middle of an ancient deer forest and spent much time studying, drawing and sculpting the deer," says Liz, who returned to the UK in 2002. She adds: "I create pieces in ceramic, porcelain and glass, papier-mâché, bronze and cement/fibreglass casts. My chosen range of media allows me freedom in the interpretation of the image. I extrapolate from the world around me. My passion is to represent the character and mood of the subject rather than just a physical form. I enjoy catching a sense of movement. I love the challenge of 3D work and always have ‘itchy fingers’ for new materials." Prior to this Liz trained and worked as a veterinary surgeon in both farm and small animal practice for a number of years. "My roots in veterinary medicine give an interesting anatomical edge to my interpretation of ‘the nature of the beast’." Liz's work moves from animal forms to pieces, which find their roots in writing, where the written piece and the artwork are developed together. "The work I create this way is original, unusual and intriguing." Liz regularly exhibits around the UK and her work can be found in private and business collections.
