Liz Payne is an Australian textile artist who combines bold coloured paint with stitch and bead textures.
"I get a lot of inspiration from historical influences, for example the beautiful textiles and beaded artefacts from countries such as Nigeria, Guatemala and Uzbekistan - where pieces were not only decorative and functional but also told a story of the many hours and hands that worked on it.
I'm also immensely inspired by contemporary influence and trends in fashion, culture, media and design. I think it's this blend of the old with the new that I find really appealing." Liz Payne
