Elizabeth Saunders

Artist Statement
Elizabeth is a Textile Artist who works with paint, print, collage and stitch within her work.

Elizabeth has exhibited her work within galleries and in National shows. Continuing to be influenced by historic and contemporary artists she finds motivating people about textiles exciting and rewarding.

Her work is often inspired by a narrative of her own memories and journeys through life. The expression of imagination, fragility, motivation, experience and determination unfold within her work aiming to make the invisible memories-visible.
