A Wigan based Artist; inspired by science, tech and nature. Experimenting with digital, fabric, photo, moving-image, pen and pencil to explore and observe the world.

Liz Chapman (b. 1984, UK) uses a range of media to explore and document the world around her. Chapman experiments with digital media, photo, moving-image, fabrics, pen and pencil to recreate the qualitative elements and synthetic representation of her everyday environment. Her work is an attentive exploration and intends to express her fascination with science and nature; through abstraction and highlighting the patterns, weave and weft, colour and shapes that often go unnoticed in the world around us.

Chapman has recently completed coordinating the D:Circus Digital Art Project; a two-year programme funded by Arts Council England and Wigan Council, working with Wigan Libraries and Museums to deliver high quality digital art. The project covered different aspects of digital art, to give people in Wigan borough and beyond the opportunity to grow and enhance their potential for digital expression and arts engagement.

Chapman also facilitates an Artist discussion group on a voluntary basis across Wigan Borough. She is also a qualified Arts Award Discover & Explore Advisor and has extensive experience of delivering workshops, interactive creative projects, story and making sessions with people of all ages.
