Liz Butler’s work tends towards the small and intricate. She has always favoured watercolour for its brilliance and transparency, but has recently been encouraged to try painting in tempera. She welcomes the discovery of this medium, which is more brilliant in colour and can be used transparently. Liz Butler was trained at Liverpool College of Art and the Royal College of Art. Her work is represented in the Government Art Collection, Abbott Hall Art Gallery, Kendal and Harewood House.
