Underlying Liz Morton’s passion is her innate capacity to distill vibrant and unique paintings using random texture as a base. As she says “when I paint the world just falls away as if I was touched by a memory”. Each painting is unique and exciting, the vibrant color wraps into the texture and layers to create exciting intricate patterns. Her approach is constantly evolving as she transforms her experiences with texture, collage, acrylic, watercolor, graphite, spray paint, oil sticks, pastels, color pencil, and anything else that makes her smile!
Liz studied art: with her grandmother; completed design and printmaking studies at Appalachian State University (Boone NC and NYC); completed a dual major in printmaking and commercial design at Barton College (Wilson, NC); MFA studies in painting and art history at the University of NC at Greensboro; and Intuitive Painting at Ghost Ranch, NM. When she is in her studio she listens to art documentaries, her favorites: Okeeffe, Kahlo, Picasso, Pollack, Kandinsky, Basquiat, Warhol, and others.
