It’s no secret we are huge fans of local artist . We’ve been following Lizzie’s work for many years, and have been thrilled to see her gather a much-deserved following of keen collectors in recent years. Like so many, we love Lizzie’s naive, painterly style, and her unique way of capturing the quiet beauty in ordinary moments.

Having relocated from inner city Melbourne to Victoria’s Macedon Ranges region two years ago (revisit her beautiful family home, here), Lizzie now works from her home studio. ‘’ delves further into the artist’s ongoing explorations of still-life, interiors, and botanical themes, offering 12 new paintings on linen, on a larger scale than ever before.

Inspired by remedies for winter ailments, these paintings document Lizzie’s connectedness to the environment and her rural surroundings, and offer an intimate snapshot of her daily experiences of country life, motherhood, and self preservation.

Emerging from a very intense time with babies, I promised I would look after myself better this year, and attend to some niggling health issues’ the artist explains. ‘I was collecting herbs from the garden to cook with one afternoon in Autumn, and I ended up drawing them in the jug on the bench, while I sat with the kids during their dinnertime. The exhibition sort of grew from there’.

The palette of this show is moodier than usual for Lizzie, and the works are larger than her previous paintings, too. ‘I wanted to push my practice this year to create some larger still-life and interior works, centred around a specific theme’ the artist explains. ‘I LOVE working on a larger scale, the compositions become looser, and it feels like you could just walk into the canvas.’

Please join us on Saturday August 19th to view this beautiful show, and share a drink with the artist. Alongside the usual wine and beer offering, will also be serving up a herbal-infused gin – perfect for Saturday afternoon sipping!

All the works in this show are now pictured on the .  We are accepting pre-sales from today – all enquiries please email [email protected] – Thankyou!
