Elizabeth is a former geologist with a PhD in palaeoclimatology. Her photographic practice creates a way to explore the landscape and examine the interconnections between humans, environment and natural processes.
Elizabeth says ‘ My creative practice is a form of environmental and ecological research; I investigate how landscapes have been shaped and how they respond to human influence. My work combines studio-based construction with outdoor experimentation in order to create serendipitous and evocative imagery.
Much of my photography is characterised by tactile transformative processes, such as the folding, fragmentation and manipulation of physical prints. I also incorporate many natural elements – sunlight, trees, plants, rivers, rocks and waves – into my artworks’
