Welcome to the world of Liz Toole, birds, trees and flowers galore!
Here you can find beautiful handmade prints that are designed and printed by Liz Toole down on the South coast in Brighton.
In her recent work Liz has been creating imaginary scenes filled with the patterns of nature inspired by both the Sussex countryside and the diversity of life she found whilst travelling in Africa. Liz is interested in looking at details of trees and plants, Indian textiles and bird encyclopaedias, and merging these sources to create patterns that celebrate the English decorative tradition.
Liz Toole's latest prints have been handmade in small editions, using the techniques of lino-cutting and screen-printing. The use of coloured French and Indian handmade papers has also become increasingly important to her.
Within her work as a whole, Liz uses nature as a metaphor for human emotions.
