About

Elizabeth Martyn travelled to Australia from London in 1981. She studied Fine Art in Bristol, England, then worked in the theatre as designer and performer appearing at the Edinburgh Festival in the 1970’s.
 
Drawing, painting, sculpture and theatre have been part of her life for many years.
On arrival in Melbourne she studied with artist Mirka Mora for several years. She paints in watercolour and oil, using pure colours with luminous intensity.  Having trained as an art therapist, the use of colour for healing forms the basis of her work. Plein-air painting is a source of joy and inspiration and she has worked for extended periods in Italy, Greece, England, and the desert regions around Lake Eyre.
 
She has paintings in several healing centres, as well as private collections in USA, Australia, England and Denmark.
 
Works may be viewed by appointment at her Camberwell studio, where she also teaches life drawing and painting classes .
