About Liz Mitchell

I look to nature for a richness of content and surfaces and emulate these characteristics through my varied materials and processes. Within this visual context, I investigate the elements of human nature which move us to ask questions and consider the peculiar and odd using themes found in religion, folklore, and fairy tales.”

Liz Mitchell is most known for her narrative paper and fiber installations. She is a multi-media artist who uses a broad range of materials and processes including printmaking and collage to tell her visual stories. She uses innovative layering techniques that create ancient-looking, timeworn surfaces creating a sense of intimate curiosity. The scale of her work ranges from small handmade books to site specific installations.

She has exhibited her work nationally and internationally in group and solo exhibitions for over 20 years. Her work is included in the collections of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, in Alexandria, Egypt; Pennsylvania Power and Light; Johnson and Johnson WHQ, Allergan Corporate Art Collection; William Paterson University; The Experimental Printmaking Institute, and Skillman Library at Lafayette College, among others.
