Elizabeth Cadd


Elizabeth Cadd is a self taught watercolour artist,  experienced printmaker, pattern designer and graphic designer. She has worked as a freelancer for over 15 years.

Elizabeth enjoys nature and the visceral experience of connecting with the natural elements in the landscape. Her printmaking and pattern design work is often experimental, intuitive and vibrant. Her colour use has intensified in recent years as she ventures into more abstract work. She explores memories of being in the countryside or on the coast through her work whilst refering to plants, flowers and materials found there.
