Arty interviews Liz

Where did you grow up?
in the wilderness of North Wales

Is there a new Girly sensibility in Art?

not that i feel particually aware or in tune with. This question suggests to me some kind of spice girls fad type notion is being exhumed

What star sign are you? leo

What influences and inspires you?
the Wallace collection and tv

Is it important or irrelevant for women artists to engage with the art world on a political level?

art is political the world is political we all engage

Is your work particularly female or feminine?

i dont register it as such.it’s a genetic accident that i am a girl but it is no accident that i make art.

Do you think little girls are made of sugar and spice and all things nice?
not really. although a glamour can make such a notion appear true.
