Lizzy’s love of colour is what drives her work, both her painting and her millinery.
“Colour is what makes my heart beat. I emotionally connect to colour. It can make me smile and it can make me sad. It’s this connection that tells me when the balance of a hat or painting is right, along with the design…. then I smile”.
Lizzy’s experience comes from many years of running her own fashion business, and working on commissions in both her portrait and abstract art pieces. It is this experience, along with her artistic eye and her love of fashion and textiles, that bring her millinery creations to life.
Being lucky enough to enjoy all her passions at once, Lizzy’s love of art, fashion, the glamorous world of film, and exploring history through art and costume, is how her influences are defined; the colours, along with the textures, are worked into a piece, which then starts to become the person for whom it is for.
