Elizabeth Fortescue

I am a painter living and working in West Dorset. I make paintings in response to walking through my world - light and air, rain and wind, the time of the day and the turn of the tide.

During a visit to Australia I was moved and inspired by the Indigenous Australian painters who "walk into" their ancient landscapes in paint. I am trying to find my own way of depicting man's hand on the West Dorset landscape through time. 

I paint in oil, watercolour and acrylic; I also use textiles and stitching and a mixture of all of these. I work outside in the hills, the coastal marshes, the beach and in my studio.

I make prints, working with drypoint, linocut, carborundum and monotype.

 My studio is open by appointment.
