Liz Niemeyer is a painter who contemplates the cycles of nature. A rural Illinois native, she is struck by the experience of being immersed in a forest or standing, in reverential awe, on a mountain bald. When she moved to North Carolina in 2009, this land became her muse. She seeks to invoke a sense of childlike wonder in her work and is inspired by her own children’s embodiment of unrestrained play. Using this sense of playfulness, coupled with her traditional art training, her work can take the viewer to magical, wonderful places. She hopes her paintings remind other humans to respect and deeply regard nature and its rhythms, and help us remember our true nature of being energetically connected to everything. Liz received a Bachelor of Art degree from Eastern Illinois University in 2008.
Her work is available as giclee prints and stickers here
Liz is based in the blue folds of Western North Carolina.
