Liz’s paintings are atmospheric, original contemporary works that explore our landscape.  Her paintings are textured and layered creating moody and thought -provoking scenes.  Liz has a fascination for light, water and the outdoors and how our landscape’s mood can be changed by light alone.

Liz Turnbull (BA) Background

Liz began painting 15 years ago while living in a small southern Bohemian town in the Czech Republic.  Liz’s earlier paintings depicted these heritage buildings.  She continued painting while living in France for two years but back in NZ, Liz was struck by a new appreciation for the surreal light and vivid yet harmonious colours of her homeland and this is strongly emphasised in her work.

Liz’s studio is a converted 50-year-old woolshed that also houses boutique accommodation (please visit, situated in the foothills, 10 minutes south of Katikati. The Woolshed overlooks an ever-changing vista of orchard-strewn valley, farmland and the Pacific Ocean beyond.
