PopUp Painting’s ‘artist of the week’ is PopUp Painting team member and artist Elizabeth Kennedy.
Elizabeth Kennedy is a London based artist who graduated from The University of Birmingham with a Creative Arts BA (Hons) in 2003.
The artist works predominantly in painting, working with acrylics, oils and watercolours. Kennedy’s paintings are figurative works, which mainly focus on the genres of portraiture and landscape. There is a strong sense of light in Kennedy’s work, which is handled with loose brushstrokes and bold colour combinations.
Elizabeth Kennedy also works across other mediums when embarking on projects and collaborations between different art groups. The artist herself notes that she is:
‘passionate about all arts and views creativity as a foundation of society, a key to building community and a vital form of expression of self and situation’.
