Elizabeth Hand

“I am painter of distant places and seek places of solitude which are imbued with a sense of the sacred. I am particularly fascinated by traces of history and human- endeavour found on old walls.”

Elizabeth (Liz) Hand trained in Fine-art and Contemporary Tapestry-weave at Farnham Art School, Dartington Hall and the University of Reading. At Dartington she collaborated with musicians and dancers and was awarded an Elm Scholarship for further study.

Now happily settled in Wells in Somerset, she is devoted to her own work describing herself as a painter of distant places, responding to experiences recorded whilst travelling in the Mediterranean and SE Asia. She has walked in the remote Himalayas, bussed in India, explored remote temples in Cambodia, travelled by moped along the Northern borders of Thailand and paddled down the waterways of Myanmar, all with sketchbook and camera in hand. Various exhibitions have followed.

Elizabeth worked in education for over 30 years creating opportunities for young people and the wider community to engage with art and artists through high-profile exhibitions, workshops and residencies. Over many years she directed week-long ‘Arts’ and ‘Words’ Alive Festivals, bringing together professionals and amateurs in collaborative creative projects. She also founded and curated the Sir Terry Frost Gallery, a showcase for emerging and established contemporary artists. She is currently Chief Examiner for the Cambridge International, Pre U Art and Design.
