Liz Owens

After a long working life in education, specialising in the creative and expressive arts and latterly working in care and mental health settings I retired. After retirement, I was pleased to exhibit a series of life drawings that were well received. This urged me on to keep drawing and try out working in print media.

I currently using silk screen, linocut and monoprint to create industrial landscapes.

Much of my work is of the Tees estuary and is a homage to the demise of what was once during the 50’s 60’s and 70’s where I grew up. It was a real Northern Power House, employing thousands in the steel and petro chemical industries, in Redcar, Middlesbrough and Hartlepool. These wonderful blast furnaces will, in a few years, no longer be on the horizon.
