Liz Cooksey

'Hedgerows, waysides, meadows are all great sources of inspiration...'

Liz Cooksey works by combining wire and thread used to create intricate and delicate two dimensional and three-dimensional works reflecting her observations of nature. The inspiration for her work stems from the love natural forms in which she looks for shapes, textures, colours, within what might be a hedge row or a motorway verge, recording the small and insignificant details that can be sometimes overlooked.

She lives and works in Manchester where she studied Embroidery and went on to develop her own practise and teach textiles and fine art. Over the years her work has evolved and has become focused on the use of mixed media with a fascination for wire and crochet.

She exhibits her work in galleries and contemporary craft shows throughout the year.
