Liz Jardine HISTORY & BACKGROUND
The variety of styles present in Liz Jardine's artwork speaks volumes of this artist's natural curiosity and dynamic perspective. As a child, Jardine was raised on and artistically shaped by the sights and sounds of New York City. Jardine would journey to a different museum every Sunday with her father, who is also a painter. Broadway shows also heightened young Jardine's senses to the endless combinations of color and light, fantasy and whimsy that would eventually be incorporated into her work.
Jardine began an apprenticeship with a graphic design studio and developed skills in various advertising art and production techniques. Eventually, she began working free-lance and built a strong reputation as a skilled concept illustrator and art director. This work paved her return to watercolors in various genre as florals, landscapes, still life and abstracts. Today, Jardine flourishes in varied media but especially favors acrylics for their texturing and form-building abilities.
Jardine's art is at once uncomplicated, vibrant, powerful but capricious.
Although Jardine credits much of her inspiration to her fascination with fashion and the 1920's, her love of travel unquestionably fuels her creativity and stimulates her artwork. Wanderlust has swept her to exotic countries both near and far. She has toured extensively throughout Asia and been on safari in Kenya. Ultimately, her travel has revealed itself in many of her pieces in the primitive patterning and Serengeti-inspired colors.
