Liz Maxwell was working full time as a statistician when she began taking classes at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, California. She is now a full time artist working, on a daily basis, in her studio located in the garden of her home.
Liz is a painter and a printmaker. She is an artist who finds her inspiration in natural forms from which she abstracts macroscopic details that in her hands become subtle compositions rich in color and texture. The artist's monotype series reveals the infinite variations that may be derived from the juxtapositions of a few elements artfully composed and printed on a sheet of paper.
Liz has participated in exhibitions across the United States. Most recently she has shown her work in: Images of California, National Steinbeck Center, Salinas, CA, Westmoreland Arts & Heritage, Youngwood, PA and New Visions, Pro-Art, Oakland, CA.
