Liz Niemeyer is an artist who uses meditation and ritual to channel the multi-dimensional realities that exist in nature, and then expresses those experiences and visions through painting.
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 uses plants as allies and guides to connect her more fully to the land and the spirits that exist here. 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 and rituals of nature connection, her work can take the viewer to magical, wonderful, and often otherworldly places.
She hopes her paintings remind other humans to respect and deeply regard nature. These paintings also exist as reminders of our true human essence as interconnected energetic beings.
Liz received a Bachelor of Art degree from Eastern Illinois University in 2008.
Her work is available as giclee prints and stickers here
Based in the blue folds of Western North Carolina.
