Elizabeth lives locally and is a member of the 62 Group. She told us how her work developed from her interest in the dark side of experimental fashion designs how and this allows her to interpret her ideas into articles of clothing and accessories using unusual materials. Her interpretation of a ‘must have item’ are made from steel wool, barbed wire, tacks or nails. They are both unsettling and amusing.
She very kindly let us handle and closely inspect the work that she had brought to show us. Currently Elizabeth is working at the Whitworth in Manchester and is also an Artist in Residence at the University of Central Lancashire.
She also brought along a lot of samples some of which are made purely from melted, painted and distressed plastics, mostly bin liners!
Elizabeth also has work on display in the V&A in London.
