Liz Cooksey’s inspiration comes from natural habitats; hedgerows, garden boarders, meadows.
Her works combine wire and thread to create intricate and delicate two dimensional and three-dimensional pieces reflecting observations of nature.
The inspiration stems from the love natural forms in which Liz look for shapes, textures, colours, within what might be a hedge row or a motorway verge, recording the small and insignificant details that can be sometimes overlooked.
Liz lives and works in Manchester where she studied Embroidery and went on to develop her own practise and teach textiles and fine art.
Over the years her work has evolved and has become focused on the use of mixed media with a fascination for wire and crochet.
In her more recent work there has been a development from mainly framed relief pieces to free standing three-dimensional work, where simple wooden plinths become fertile ground from which springs an exuberance of natural forms.
We are delighted to have a small range of Liz’s pieces with us at the moment; everlasting flowers for Mother’s Day make a great gift. Follow Liz over on Instagram.
