I spent many years working professionally as a horticulturist. All that time outside gave me a deep pool of images and feelings about wild, semi-wild and cultivated landscapes. I change my style or methods when it comes up naturally through play and exploration of the image.
The florals and wild garden paintings are all gouache on paper. Botanical cartoons are watercolor and ink on paper. The Collage are gouache on treated sumi-e paper and heavy watercolor paper.
Liz Innvar studied painting at the New York Studio School and horticulture at SUNY Farmingdale. She lives in Brooklyn and in Ulster County, New York. Please contact the artist for more information.
