Inspirational art direct from artist's venues throughout the Peterborough area

Lizzy Standbrook

I am a Peterborough based artist and grew up in and around Cambridgeshire.

I love painting big skies, trees, seaside scenes and I’m inspired to paint by the places I’ve been and the people I meet.

I use watercolours in non-traditional ways (never have liked colouring in the lines!) I usually paint on large canvases which is unusual for watercolours, and then mix this with brightly coloured inks, and metalic fabric paints. I use black inks and pens to draw over my paintings giving them a sketchy informal look and lots of movement and life.

One of the best thing anyone has ever said about my work is ‘the more I look the more I see!”

This year my artwork has lots of balloon inspiration – hot air balloons appear over the skies of Stamford, London, Kolkata and Mumbai. I think they symbolise hope and the unexpected – joy and fun. Even in the midst of a leprosy hospital (you can find out more about that if you visit).

I enjoy creating mini films and hoping these will be on display during PAOS too. Here’s a link to my youtube channel: Lizzy Standbrook Art on YouTube

Weather permitting there will be a garden-based art installation on 1st – 2nd July as part of PAOS … and that too might involve balloons!

Commissions are available, refreshments and fire pit into the evening and cards, prints and original artwork for sale.

You can also find more of my art more permanently at The Gables Emporium and Ferry Meadows Cafe
