Lizzie McCorquodale

Lizzie McCorquodale is best known for her atmospheric seascapes inspired by living at Cheswick, near Bamburgh, on the Northumberland coast. Walking on the shore daily, watching the clouds and sea in all weathers, she became interested in exploring the relationship between clouds and waves in her painting. 

The majority of Lizzie’s work is acrylic and gesso on deep edge canvases. She creates effects, using colour, blending, wash and texture. Lizzie often adds oil glazes, in washes, to intensify depth. Depicting light is very important to her and she strives to create art with spirit and feeling. 

Lizzie is equally at ease painting small studies of serene, summer days or stormy seas on large canvases.

Now living in the Scottish Borders Lizzie is responding to her environment by including landscape and floral work in her portfolio.

Lizzie McCorquodale has exhibited in galleries in the North East of England and the Scottish Borders from Morpeth to Edinburgh, Berwick upon Tweed, Peebles, Kelso and Melrose, including joint and solo shows in Coldstream. Lizzie opened her studio for the Crossing Borders Art Trail.

Lizzie McCorquodale is a member of the Society of Scottish Artists, graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 1986. She has taught fine art privately and at GCSE and A level in schools.
