My name is Eliza Downes, and I am artist based in London.
I have always loved painting and creating, but since coming to university it has been my biggest source of enjoyment and escapism. I find it incredibly relaxing and rewarding especially working with such beautiful subject matter.
My work aims to excite and uplift the viewer. Therefore, bright colours, bold patterns and texture define my pieces. My inspiration comes from the environment. I interpret what I see and enjoy playing with the natural forms to celebrate their beauty.
As well as painting and drawing I enjoy painting murals. Working on a larger scale makes my pieces more impactful and brightens up spaces with plants or large patterns.
