Liz Tuckwell, a Chicago native, carved out a passion for painting while living in The Netherlands. She started with a potato knife and street-market oil paints. With her adopted city of Amsterdam and love of travel as a source of inspiration, her passion for painting grew. Since her return to Chicago in 2005, she has been busy working on several series of paintings, that can best be described as Abstract Expressionism.

Her latest painting series, titled The Garden, expresses meaning with washes of colour, words and collage elements combined. The series is available by commission, with custom messages available on request.

“Of my new garden series: The idea came to me / through me as a way to inspire others. For a long time I have felt that my art work did that without words, and it does – but this new series takes inspiration to a literal level and places ideas that are often forgotten, directly in front of the viewer.  Too often we fail to recognize our own individual beauty, tenacity, growth, never-ending strengths – sometimes we forget that we are uniquely amazing and carry within us all a garden of infinite possibilities.  With my new series I simply want to remind each individual that no matter how life may appear, they have within them endless potential and that they are basically perfect just the way they are right at this moment.  A message we all can be reminded of from time to time.”
