ARTISTS / Liz Tobin
My background is in English, but I have been painting for most of my life. When I lived in Spain, where I was working as an English teacher, I would paint my surroundings, usually in watercolours.
However, when I retired four years ago, I enrolled for an Art course at Pembroke Dock Lifelong Learning and Leisure and spent three years there learning painting techniques using oils and acrylics.
At that time I began to promote myself as a local artist living in Pembrokeshire. My subject matter has been my immediate surroundings, be it town, country or seaside but mostly of Pembrokeshire.
I tend to observe my surroundings and abstract them in colourful, vibrant paintings, which though not purely abstract, are not 100% representational either
