Portraits: Head & Hands
Liz Balkwill graduated from Norwich School of Art in 1980. She has been working as a professional painter for the past 15 years, and is well known in Norfolk as a tutor and demonstrator. Always keen to develop her skills, Liz travels to the US regularly and has been fortunate to receive instruction from some of the top American oil painters and pastel artists working today, namely: Daniel Greene, Nelson Shanks, Michael Grimaldi, Robert Liberace and Sally Strand.
"His own talent, if you can help him find it, is the most interesting gift you can make to a student".
