Eliza Southwood is an award-winning printmaker, painter and illustrator from London, currently based in Northern Spain. Eliza has been drawing and painting since she was old enough to pick up a paintbrush. Eliza’s speciality is silk screen printing, but she also works in linocut, mixed media, watercolour, acrylic, pen and charcoal. As a keen fan of cycling, much of her work is cycling-themed, but other sources of inspiration are cityscapes, sports and people.

The name of show is a reflection on what it means to be outside, especially after so many were trapped indoors during the restrictions of the pandemic. It is about sports, movement, and simply taking joy in the environment around us.

Eliza’s work is shown with sculptures and miniatures by David Mayne, the creator of the Farnham Sculpture outside the gallery. David’s much loved indoor sculptures portray popular activities such as cycling and woodland walks.
