My name is Lizzie Beckerley, and I'm a Welsh artist living in beautiful Herefordshire.
I come from a family of actors, singers, poets, writer and painters, so "the arts" are very much "in the blood." Sometimes it strikes me that I'm a replica of my father, whose favourite way to spend his day would be to stand, in paint splattered clothes, at his easel, listening to very loud music.
I paint my pictures in the medium of oils. I love how vibrant and bold oil colours are. I look to paint images that make me smile. I'd happily spend all day, every day, just painting. A fellow artist once told me that he felt "happy when it rained" because he could then justify staying in all day painting. I can so relate to that!
The hard work starts when my pictures need to go into print. That's when my helpers come into play and this is why this page is "about us," not just me. It's not just me working hard to get the giclee prints together. We are a family team, comprising of my incredibly supportive partner who assists me in getting my pictures into print and my son Michael, who varnishes and prepares the pictures for sale, once they've been printed.
Being a life long animal lover, they are a subject that I'm naturally drawn to and many of my own pets, past and present, feature in my paintings.
