Liz Myhill was born in Inverness in 1980 and spent her childhood in a small crafting township on one of the northern peninsulas of the Isle of Skye. Now a noted Scottish contemporary painter, her work has been exhibited throughout the United Kingdom but is particularly associated with the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.
As a child, she had a voracious appetite for story-telling, which was only enhanced by growing up in such a remote area of the United Kingdom. She took an Honours degree in Illustration and Printmaking at the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee but her idyllic upbringing on the Isle of Skye has ensured that she remains very much inspired by the landscape, seasons and community values, which typify Scottish highland and island life.
Describing her artwork as "both vibrant and lively; hopefully an evocative impression of place", Liz Myhill now works in a variety of media including watercolour, mixed media and print. A typical piece is completed by laying down large areas of handmade and tissue papers to set the background colour, and then by working into the piece with watercolours, acrylic, pencil and anything else that comes to hand. She also often uses block printing.
Away from the artistic field, Liz Myhill loves to travel and would particularly like to spend time travelling in India and the Far East.

We partner with the world's top museums and galleries to bring you exclusive prints of the highest quality. Our teams of designers ensure the colours are accurate, papers are well suited and the best frames are suggested.
In the printing room, artworks are printed on state-of-the-art machines with a team of technicians checking colour and quality every step of the way.
After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.
We have a team of master framers who work with high-quality, responsibly-sourced wood to create our vast range of framing combinations - each frame is bespoke and made to order for every print.
Our selection of hand-finished frames are painted or stained by hand in a variety of colours, and finished with a layer of wax - the end result is a uniquely crafted, beautiful frame that is made to last.
In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.
The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.
Once mounted, the print is ready to be covered by glass or perspex - a delicate procedure but expertly done with not a fingerprint in sight.
After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.
For those who order their art as canvas prints, the same amount of attention and care goes into the process. Here, the print is being transferred to a wooden frame.
As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
