Welcome to liz Bernard

My name is Liz Bernard. I have always had a keen interest in arts and crafts since an early age, but at school I was encouraged to study science and went on to do a degree in Biological Sciences at University. I went into teaching Biology and had a short break in my career at 40, when I attended Wimbledon Art School to do a Foundation year. I thoroughly enjoyed pursuing my creative side, but this was short-lived, as I returned to teaching for the remainder of my working life. As I always promised myself, when I turned 60, I began to study drawing and painting at Adult Education Centres and at the NEAC. I was inspired by a four day course sketching in and around the Strand in London, and this led to a body of work - 'Architectural' in my Gallery. I continue to experiment with different media and subjects and am excited by everything I try my hand at.
In 2011/2012 i had two paintings accepted for exhibition in London. One in the Pastel Society Exhibition at the Mall Galleries and one in the Royal Watercolour Society Exhibition at Bankside Gallery. During the same two years, I had a painting exhibited at Patchings and one highly commended.
