About the artist
Liz Hackney studied at Somerset College Of Art & Technology gaining a B.A. (Hons) in Textiles and Surface Pattern Design during the mid 1990's. After spending a couple of years in Wiltshire she moved to Cornwall in 1997 setting up a small studio in St. Agnes on the north coast. During this time she developed her unusual technique using tissue paper and inks to create detailed textured collages and paintings.
She later moved to Charlestown on the south coast of Cornwall and on her 30th birthday she opened Atishoo Gallery and Picture Framers with her parents Mike & Jenny. They have now retired and she runs the gallery with her partner and fellow artist Paul Clark. The gallery celebrates 20 years at this location in 2023.
