Elizabeth Saunders is a Textile Artist who works with print, paint, collage and stitch within her work. Elizabeth has exhibited her work within galleries and in National shows. Continuing to be influenced by historic and contemporary artists she finds motivating people about textiles exciting and rewarding. Her work is often inspired by a narrative of her own memories and journeys through life. The expression of imagination, fragility, motivation, experience and determination unfold within her work aiming to make the invisible memories-visible. Elizabeth has been integrating photographic image transfer as a development to her practice and enjoys working with vintage Maps.
has pursued her love of fabric and stitch in various ways throughout her life, achieving a BTEC (distinction) Machine Embroidery in 2010 and an FdA (Merit) Stitched Textiles in 2014. Whilst she has been influenced by a number of artists from differing practices, including printers and artists as well as many textile artists.
