Liz Butler RWS
If you’re reading this somewhere other than Chiswick, you will find when you come back that the place is awash with pink tulips, in anticipation of the opening of the Chiswick Flower Market on Sunday 6 September 2020.
Artist Liz Butler RWS has been kind enough to let Chiswick Flower Market use her beautiful watercolour of a Gisella Jacqueline tulip for a specially commissioned poster to mark the market’s opening.
Liz has been a member of the Royal Watercolour Society since 1996 and as well as studying art at Liverpool College of Art and the Royal College of Art, has spent four years studying the history of gardening at Birkbeck College. She is well known for her miniature paintings of gardens, and her use of pure watercolour.
She lives in Chiswick and paints the trees from her studio window at different times of year, and in different lights. She also teaches watercolour painting. She currently has two of her pictures on show at the Bankside Gallery and has been invited to take part in an exhibition there about the Chelsea Physic Garden, to be exhibited in 2021.
