Liz Hess is a full-time artist from Lancaster Pennsylvania. She is the sister of Dan Hess. As a young girl, Liz was known for her artistic ability, collecting awards for her work throughout her childhood and teenage years. From the ages of 23-31 Liz made her home 10 miles above the Arctic Circle in a village in northern Sweden. She speaks, reads, and writes Swedish fluently, and travels there periodically for visits.
Once a year Liz travels abroad to spend several weeks painting on location. Trying to capture on canvas such beautiful locations as Tuscany, Venice, Paris, Provence or Mexico has proven to be invaluable in stretching Liz’s artistic imagination, encouraging her to experiment with new techniques and color palettes. Her travels have served as the catalyst needed to push her forward into new areas of artistic expression and exploration.
One of her most popular collections is the Red Umbrella series which was first created during one of those trips. The collection continues to grow as she continues to travel. Departing from her typical style of more representational art, she ventures into the whimsical world of illustrated felines and canines in her “All about Cats & Dogs” collection.
The artist she idolizes most is the Master Painter Himself, who has filled this earth with form, color, and pattern too beautiful for any human being to recreate. It is this Artist, God the Creator, who has made all the difference in her life.
