printed on Giclée Hahnemühle German Etching
Lizzie Riches was born in East London in 1950 and grew up near Epping Forest, where she first developed a love of natural history. Lizzie went to Camberwell School of Art and to Goldsmiths, but felt out of sympathy with the painting styles of the late sixties preferred to develop her own visual language. Riches lived for many years in rural Suffolk, however it was not the landscape that inspired her, but the birds, animals, plants and insects that she found there. Her interests have widened to exotic flora and fauna and she is particularly fascinated by the relationship between human civilisation and the natural world. Lizzie Riches first exhibited with Portal Painters in 1976 and has exhibited with them ever since, Lizzie has had solo exhibitions in Chicago and Paris. Lizzie Riches often undertakes commissioned paintings, usually portraits executed in her own imaginative style. Riches paintings are in the in The Sainsbury, Standard Chartered Bank & Prudential Collections. Lizzie Riches exhibits with Portal Painters at the London Art Fair in Islington, the Affordable Art Fairs in Battersea (Spring Fair) and Hampstead and at the 20/21 British Art Fair at The Royal College of Art.
