Liz Lippiatt is a renowned textile designer-printer, she obtained a First Class degree in Fashion at the Gloucestershire College of Art and Design. She grew up on a farm, and her work has often been inspired by the natural world around her. At the age of 22 she opened a print studio in the Cotswolds.
Liz has worked with David Watson and the Hampshire Cultural Trust to create 3 designs.
Bluebird - this design was inspired by photographs of Bluebird CN7 in the extraordinary landscape of Lake Eyre, Western Australia. The car broke the world land speed record there in 1964. Liz created this evocative design during a recent visit to the area. Bluebird CN7 is on display at the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu.
Sense & Sensibility - Contemplating Jane Austen, one of the world’s most famous authors, and her life in Hampshire which inspired so many of her novels, Liz used the titles of Austen’s work and comments on her writing style to create this exquisite design for Hampshire Cultural Trust.
The Chace Tapestry - Inspired by the Chace Tapestry depicting a hunting scene in the New Forest, Liz selected design elements from the original tapestry to create a contemporary design.
