"Capturing the life force in nature"
International artist Liz Reday brings a fresh vision to the landscape tradition. Whether depicting the light of Italy, mists of Japan, billowing clouds of England or golden haze of California, her atmosphere effects convey a range of feelings from joyous energy to meditative
serenity. Often envisioned with trees as a focus, her canvases frequently integrate them into a luminous environment with reflections of sky, floral or plant highlights, and water effects ranging from still lakes to rippling streams.
Liz Reday earned her master's degree at the Royal College of Art in London. Her previous education included a scholarship at the San Francisco Art Academy; a year as a student of David Hockney at the University of California at Irvine; study at the Positano Art Workshop, Italy; and three years printmaking at the Central School of Art, London.
In 1998 and 1999 her work was featured in six solo shows in major cities across Japan, including Tokyo and Osaka. She has also appeared prominently at Art Expo shows in New York and California.
Liz Reday has also exhibited at the Royal Academy, Serpentine Gallery, Langdon Gallery, and Commonwealth Art Gallery, London; the Bradford, England, International Print Biennale; and in shows in Southern California. She is represented in a wide variety of corporate and private collections including those of ITT, Ford Motor Company, Deloitte & Touche, the
Fluor Corporation, University of Michigan, Sydney (Australia) International Airport, and the London studios of The Who.
