Biography / Artist statement
Elizabeth Pybus Sutton is a contemporary figurative artist, born in Yorkshire and now practising in SW London. Trained in both conceptual and atelier methods, she loves exploring the balance between modern and traditional styles and playing with abstract and representational aspects. Elizabeth’s work includes portraiture, life drawing, still life and landscapes, using a range of mediums, primarily in oils. Working live is an important element in much of her art. Whilst nature is predominantly her teacher and inspiration, she focuses on strength of drawing and a celebration of colour. The joy of finding values, playing with temperatures, proportions and edges are what makes painting such a fascinating journey for her. Recently exhibited at the Green and Stone Summer exhibition.
