Sunnyshore Studio is excited to have four guests artists featured at the popular Camano Island Studio Tour. Meet one of our guest artist and Camano treasure, Liz Hamlin.
Liz is an outstanding artist and person. She has led the Camano Art Association’s mentoring program at Stanwood High School for years. Recently she has been working on large watercolors painted of her neighborhood, views that she sees on her daily walks.
Sunnyshore Studio: How long have you been doing art? Tell us something about your journey in art?
Liz: Over many years of making art my love of watercolor continues with passion.
Sunnyshore Studio:What kind of art do you do? Why do you enjoy this medium?
Liz: I focus on non-traditional subjects; aerial views, monks, or broken glass were all subjects over the years.
Sunnyshore Studio: What are the joys and challenges for you as an artist?
Liz: My greatest joy has come from creating art unlike any I have seen elsewhere–color patch, a hard edged technique, the flower girl series combining figures and flowers or a two part piece for the viewer to walk between. Convincing the viewing public that watercolors are serious art is an ongoing challenge.
Sunnyshore Studio: Why are you excited about being a part of the Studio Tour at Sunnyshore this year?
Liz: I am delighted and honored to be showing at Sunnyshore Studios with the Dorsey family of very accomplished artists.
