About the Artist

Liz Geiger Lund:
liz_geiger-1I studied art in college with a focus on watercolor landscapes and figure studies. In my work with the government I was able to travel extensively. I find myself inspired by the scenery and artwork I’ve seen around the world. The majority of my work is in watercolor done in the puddling style. I was introduced to this style in college and found that it really captured my imagination. Puddling allows for beautiful blooming and wonderful out of control areas defined in some crisp lines.

I also adore working with colored pencils as they allow for intricate pieces. I rarely work small, and so each colored pencil drawing can take up to 40 hours. The layering and depth one can achieve is worth the time and investment of energy.

The great impressionists have heavily influenced my art and I strive to communicate sensation of a moment in my art. I believe art at its finest should evoke emotions in someone, whether it’s joy, humor, or simple peace art should definitely speak to you. Although an understanding of composition, form, line etc… can help one understand the technical aspects, in the end you enjoy the piece or not. This core communication steps outside of education and speaks simply to the underlying emotions. I have always found these emotions through my time outside and therefore most of my artwork is landscape work. I hope you enjoy my work and sense of humor.

I am currently occupying a studio space in Everett, WA with one other amazing artists; Janet Wold. We are in the corner gallery and studio on the corner of Wetmore and Hewitt in downtown Everett.
