Elizabeth Griffiths is a mixed media artist using hand embroidery, lino print-making, inks and watercolours to explore a range of themes.

She shares the uplifting experience (and challenge!) of using hand embroidery as a competitor in Sky TV Portrait Artist Of The Year.

We dive behind the scenes!

Who was her portrait subject? How was it organised?

What was it like trying to compete using hand embroidery against 'paper & paint' artists?

This was just one of a number of events that have made 2022 a rollercoaster of a year for Elizabeth, and we chat about how these events have affected her art and creativity.

Susan Weeks chats with Elizabeth Griffiths about:

  • Exploring mixed-media - lino prints, inks, watercolours - with hand embroidery
  • The excitement of taking part in Sky Portrait Artist Of The Year
  • How to use embroidery in a time limited, live, portrait competition
  • Keeping true to her style
  • Using mixed media to trigger embroidery
  • Why Elizabeth put away her needles & thead for a while
  • Do silk paints go off, we wondered?
  • Evolving our art as we also evolve
  • Using our art to cope with stress
  • Having her 1st solo exhibition
  • When everything happens at once...

and so much more!
