Lyz Gardner is a landscape Artist  specialising in Oil Pastels. 

After a degree in Visual Arts from the University of Lancaster Lyz travelled widely throughout the British Isles painting the places she visited. Lyz then completed a PGCE and  embarked on a teaching career  before settling down in East Anglia to  focus exclusively on Landscape painting.

"Oil pastels offer me the freedom to be spontaneous - I prefer to work with my hands rather than with a brush. I enjoy building up many layers of  the medium , creating texture, that is then etched into with a palette knife or pencil. This process and technique is what defines my work.

 I am  interested in how our response to landscape is emotional often incorporating our  own memories of special places. I hope my attempts to capture landscapes resonate in some way with the viewer"
