 Arrival of Spring - Acrylic on Canvas 15'' x 21''

Lizzy Forrester has quickly generated a wealth of interest in her spiritually rich paintings, drawings and pastels.  Although the artist emphasizes the importance of a continuously developing style, it is clear that Forrester is an immense talent with an exceptional eye for the fleeting beauty of the natural world.  With a careful stroke of the brush, Forrester captures the nuances of light as they dance upon brilliantly hued flowers, verdant green trees and lush pastures.  Equally adept at rendering architecture, Forrester easily translates the gentle play of light and shadow from plein air to paper.  With soft textures, aesthetic beauty, and stimulating colors, Forrester’s works offer a therapeutic experience to viewers.  As the eye travels across the artistic surface, the mind is transported from the realities of everyday life to a quiet space, far away, where the spirit is healed and nurtured.  Reflecting upon the peaceful scenes set forth in each piece, the viewer engages in a form of meditation, quieting the mind to become absorbed completely in the work.

Born and raised in England, Lizzy Forrester has lived all of her adult life in Spain.  A devout Buddhist, her deep faith provides infinite inspiration for her breathtaking works of art.

Lizzy Forrester was born in Liverpool, England, but lives and works in the Balearic Islands off the South coast of Spain, conducts an orchestra of resounding colors with each stroke of her brush. Her luminous and highly textured canvases reflect a deep admiration for the Impressionist painters, placing a strong emphasis on the interplay of light on surfaces. But, Forrester’s impetus for painting lies much deeper than a simple desire to render the rays of light as they cascade upon a placid pond or field of poppies. In fact, like a stream of consciousness poem or impromptu musical composition, Forrester’s works serve as expressions of the artist’s innermost thoughts and emotions. Her stunning landscape paintings resonate with a sense of calm and happiness, evidencing the artist’s strongly influential spirituality. Her artwork serves primarily as a communicative tool, created by impulse and an inexplicable urge to paint, but also expresses the self-taught artist’s innate understanding of color theory and sophisticated eye for spatial arrangements. Lizzy Forrester was born in Liverpool, England, but lives and works on the island of Ibiza in Spain.

Lizzy Forrester (AKA Deborah McNeill) was born in Liverpool, NW of England, has lived all her adult life in Spain. Surrounded by a great appreciation of art from an early age, her father is an excellent artist (painting in oils) hours spent wandering around the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool are of her fondest memories as a child.

After a spiritual retreat in the summer of 2006,  Forrester started to dedicate all her free  time to her great passion, painting: By October 2008 on account of the interest shown by Galleries and promotors alike plus solid sales on an international level, she decided to give up work completely and dedicate herself to her painting. 

'....It is not unusual for Lizzy to feel or experience the creation of her Artwork as explosive: the paintings are full of life energy."
