Illustration & D​esign

Liz has created and painted a number of murals for community venues.

In 2018 Liz designed and then worked with young people during Drop-in Sessions at The fOrT Youth Centre in Geelong to paint a vibrant welcome mural onto the entrance wall.

In 2015 Liz was commissioned to create a mural for the Toy Library at the Boorai Children's Centre in Ocean Grove. The imagery reflects the joy of play, and reflects the unique local coastal environment. The mural was painted onto ply wood panels that were attached to the high curved walls of the library.

In 2014 Liz worked as an artist mentor for a young artist with a disability through the Athena’s Guild Project in 2014. Afterwards, Liz was commissioned by the City of Geelong to reproduce some of the imagery created by her mentored artist onto a Traffic Control Box at a busy intersection. The box was located at the corner of Ormond Rd and McKillop St in East Geelong, and the artwork featured was titled Natasha's dancers.

The following set of insect murals was commissioned in 2010 and painted on cement board cut into shapes roughly 1 metre in diameter. It's displayed along the playground fenceline of Darebin Kindergarten and Childcare Centre, in inner Melbourne.

The following murals are displayed in the junior eating area of the playground of a coastal school at Barwon Heads Primary School. The panels focus on the school's house colours and with blackboard paint to invite interaction they depict themes of food and nature. They were painted on marine ply, are about 1.5 metres wide and were completed in 2014.

This mural celebrated children's friendships and was painted in 2007 on cement board attached to an old brick sandpit wall at Regent Baptist Kindergarten in Reservoir, Melbourne. It is more than 2 metres wide.
