Liz has unique style, an eye for intricate detail and passionately believes in meticulous lighting, which helps transform her work into powerful art forms. Her determination to translate art directors' concepts earn her, not only, strong working relationships with art directors, but with makers, stylists, builders, retouchers and all those who work with her to create the images.
Liz splits her time between London and her studio in Wales - a conversion building to her specification, for the purpose of having a quiet creative space, in which to shoot personal work and house a vast collection of curiosities and props. Since completion of the project, she has however worked on advertising and editorial commissions, as well as personal work with remote art direction, and self styling.
During Covid-19 Liz has shifted all her work to her fully fitted and kitted Wales studio from where she can continue to offer the same high level of service and image making while complying with current social distancing guidelines.
