Liz Jeary (b.1980) is an experimental Fine Art Photographer based on The Wirral, Merseyside.
Having a love for textures, street, fashion and beauty, her contemporary and innovative approach to photography produces results that are indicative of her perspective on life, whimsical and humorous, with a touch of melancholy.
Liz works exclusively with digital photograp...hy but puts an emphasis on the photograph as an object by physically manipulating printed images. This is usually in the form of Photobroderie (hand embroidery) but has also involved printing on unexpected surfaces, such as wallpaper, to push the boundary of what is considered a photograph. Influence comes from music, unusual faces and a life-long obsession with birds.
The photographer states her influences stretch as far as Kate Bush, but her vivid imagination is a major driving force in her creative outlet. Sometimes with great humour, sometimes with a sadder outlook; a juxtaposition which probably describes her best as an individual. The artist states there is a stubbornness within her, which will only let her produce work that reflects her as a person. She can be mainstream, but there’s a different perspective within herself and this is reflected in her creative endeavour.
The artist also draws influence from people and shapes – she has a love for unusual faces and seeing them in print inspires the artists to creatively react. She also draws references from 20th century masters who used geometric forms, such as Piet Mondrian.
Alongside her creative ventures, Liz also works internationally as a Freelance Photographer, and a part-time Camera Sales Expert. She is an experienced Project Manager and Curator of group and solo exhibitions. Returning to education as a mature student, in 2014 Liz received a First Class BA (Hons) degree in Photography from the University of Salford.
