Liz Whiteman Smith, I am a London based screen printer. As a Londoner, I am proud of the history and heritage in plain sight around every corner and the constant evolution and dynamism of the new that mixes, merges and develops this great city every single day. My series of London screen prints celebrates this juxtaposition of old and new that makes my home city so unique. My quirky series of much-loved London pubs celebrates their importance to generations of local communities. They are all in beautiful and well-loved buildings and I try to bring their amazing stories to life.
I have been fortunate to travel widely outside London and the UK and cannot help but be fascinated by the wonderful experiences I have had and the sights I have seen. I have created many series of multi layered screen prints based on these, working from my own photographs and drawings but inspired always by my imagination, using colour to print playful images, perhaps with a sideways glace that others may not have considered. My aim is always to make people smile.
An elected member of the Southbank Printmakers Gallery, I founded the North London Printmakers group, nurturing both emerging and established printmakers and giving them opportunities to exhibit in galleries and art fairs both in the UK and overseas, most recently in Stockholm, Sweden. I have work in the Victoria and Albert Museum archives.
