Artist Statement

During lockdown in 2020 Liz spent eight months in the Podkarpackie region of S.E.Poland.  Here she made many excursions to the densely planted forests and local river San, recording in watercolour the delicate wild flowers as they came into season.  Eastern Carpathian Toothwort is featured in her embroidery as it is one of the first flowers to emerge in March, carpeting the forest floor in a haze of delicate purple.  

Should the work be sold, the artist will make arrangements with the buyer to collect from the gallery or a mutually suitable venue.
