Immerse yourself in this magical world. Dinosaurs and princesses roam through an abundant jungle bursting with lush vegetation. Discover a cascading waterfalls and a flying squirrel soaring on the breeze. Bring a bit of magic and mystery along with vibrant shades of blue and green into your home with my painting ‘Dreamy Scene,’ completed February 2022.
A beautiful detail of this painting is the purple brontosaurus in the distance. She is strolling across the top of the waterfall, large and in charge. The art of Liz Haywood is full of thoughtful details. Did you notice the crown on the head of this adult seal relaxing close to the foreground of this one-of-a-kind fine art painting?
We weren't expelled from the garden. We can make it ourselves! Let's take care of our earth. This stunning series of paintings is titled Garden of Eden and expresses the divine beauty of nature. The paintings capture extraordinary colors and delicate brush strokes that bring out a majesty and tranquility of nature. We can make the earth whatever we dream it should be. The colors in the paintings are vibrant, the horizon lush, the waterfalls cascading and the overall impression is one of peace and harmony. The series reflects the idea that a garden of Eden is created by us, and encourages us to take care of the environment. We are reminded that we are not separated from the garden, but part of it, and must take care of it in order for it to continue to exist for generations to come.
About The Artist:
Vivid colors permeate the art of Charlotte native Liz Haywood. Liz graduated from Appalachian State University and then attended the Portfolio Center in Atlanta. She completed her studies winning several student awards. Liz was attracted to the professional challenge of working in New York. She worked primarily as a graphic artist in Manhattan for seven years. After attaining the position as head of graphic design for the popular shoe brand, Dolce Vita, she focused on establishing herself as an independent artist. Returning to the south, she developed a steady demand for her art through social media and local showings. In Atlanta, she painted several murals in public spaces to voice her social concerns. After relocating to Charlotte, Liz created a body of work for festivals and arts shows, including Bethesda Art Row and The Festival in The Park. She was awarded an Honorable Mention by SouthEnd Arts and the Brooklyn Collective in 2021. That year Liz was also accepted into a mural residency program by Brand the Moth, where she completed her capstone mural at Lenny Boy Brewing Company. Liz’s work is now being displayed nationwide after being juried into the ArtPop class of 2022.
