My name is Liz Skelton. I am a Canadian artist, born and raised in South Africa, now living in Waterloo Ontario.
I have always been interested in art; as a teenager drawing mystical figures and then as a young stay-at-home mom where I found a passion for pottery. This passion turned into a thriving business and for 12 years I sold my pottery at local Cape Town markets, exporting to several out of country venues and participating in a regional ceramics art exhibition. I stopped potting and sold the business when the family immigrated to Canada in 1997.
Several years later I attended art classes presented by local Canadian artists at The Button Factory in Waterloo. These triggered a new direction for my artistic passion. I started exploring color and as a self-taught artist I am continually inspired by various shapes and forms, the vitality and vividness of color and the optimism it portrays. As an abstract artist I love to experiment with new techniques, creating different textures, shapes and movement using acrylics
