Elizabeth Walsh

Elizabeth paints wildlife, plants, trees and flowers from the Lake District near where she lives and goes out walking. Fields, woodland, hedges and the riverside at the various seasons give her opportunities that she can anticipate (foxgloves, honeysuckle) and the unexpected (a tawny owl in daylight). Then, when it is possible, there can be holidays in the Dolomites or the Loire Valley with a whole new flora, and occasional fauna - marmots, alpine choughs - to discover.

Sometimes, when places become derelict and overgrown, things can happen. Buddleias sprout from a tumbledown wall and attract a variety of butterflies, ivy gets in everywhere, fungi grow in profusion on an old wooden bridge. As Sylvia Plath said, "Our kind multiplies. We shall by morning inherit the earth, Our foot's in the door." Watch, and let it be.

We will be adding this collection very soon.
