Originally from Sorrento in Victoria, Lizzie Connor now lives at Mudjimba on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland. She runs classes and workshops for both children and adults and conducts workshops in and around the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane at various galleries and facilities, and at her home studio at Mudjimba.
She says: “My passion for art is closely aligned with my love of the ocean and its relationship to man. Being close to the ocean provides endless inspiration and ideas, as well as offering a special place for focus.”
She has a Bachelor in Fine Arts from Curtin University in Western Australia. She works in a number of drawing mediums from graphite, charcoals, pastel and/or a mixture of these across a range of surfaces, many of which she creates herself.
She has held 17 solo exhibitions , including 6 joint exhibitions since 1994 and has received 40 awards to date within the south east Queensland district, Capricorn Coast, Bundaberg area, and the South Burnett.
