Introductions: Liz Kettle

Hello, my name is Liz Kettle. I am a mixed media artist and most of my work finds its beginning in fabric. My work is inspired by story, history and the environment I live and travel in. I admit to being distracted and inspired by just about everything that crosses my path so my subject matter is eclectic. I find patterns, line and texture fascinating whether they are marks made by wind and time or the patch lines in asphalt.

My work can be found in a variety of forms such as books, sculpture or traditional wall art depending on the type of story I am telling. My work is intuitive with only a bit of basic planning as I begin each project. Each piece evolves as the subject matter, the story, dictates.

I am passionate about sharing my love of making art with students in classes, workshops and on-line. You can see more of my work, read my blog and find a workshop on my website Textile Evolution.
