Liz Balkwill graduated from Norwich School of Art in 1980. She has been working as a professional painter for the past 15 years. Always keen to develop her skills, Liz travels to the US regularly and has been fortunate to receive instruction from some of the top American oil painters and pastel artists working today, namely: Daniel Greene, Nelson Shanks, Michael Grimaldi, Robert Liberace and Sally Strand.

Her work encompasses three genres; portrait, figurative and traditional still life and her extensive training and dedication to the learning process shine through in everything she produces.

She is  a full member of the Armed Forces Art Society (AFAS), and exhibits regularly with the ROI, SWA, and Pastal Society.
