I'm Liz Caires and I'm a Portuguese artist living in Somerset,England. I am self taught artist. The mediums of gouache, collage and acrylic are the ones I prefer the most. Art for me is a necessity, is something that I always have to do. My works tend to portray Nature, women, inner feelings and my surroundings. I won a Bursary from SAW in 2016. I've had exhibitions in Portugal and England and have been selected for many art competitions. My palette often contains oranges, blues and greens, I like earthy, grounding colours.
