Today it’s time to show you a selection of the works of Liz Hermanson.

Liz: Hello, there. My name is Liz and I am aspiring children’s book illustrator and artist living and working in Austin, TX. Like most artists, I began drawing in early childhood and had a bit of a fascination with David Bowie, claymation and old illustrated literature. I received my BFA in studio art at The University of Texas at Austin where I studied intaglio printmaking. My undergraduate work with etching and engraving influenced my pen and ink style today. I am very much influenced by the works of Jim Henson and others artists such as Arthur Rackham, Edmund Dulac, Brian Froud, William Hogarth and Albrecht Dürer.

Storytelling and narrative play a prominent role in my work in which imaginary beings are captured in the style of a portrait or in an ambiguous, but significant, moment in untold stories.

As mentioned, I predominantly works with pen and ink. However, I am also currently exploring my work through painting.
