While walking can simply be an act of moving from one location to another, for Elizabeth Haigh it is a contemplative action that connects her to a powerful mentor and inspiration, nature! In an age where the natural environment is under growing pressure, her critical perception of nature’s micro world offers fertile ground that manifests with delicate, subtle but insightful art works.
Elizabeth Haigh is an artist-designer-educator, a graduate of Fine Art, RMIT (1991) and Grad Dip Education, University of Melbourne (1998 ). Haigh is a multidisciplinary artist with a background in painting and sculpture who increasingly incorporates her deep family connection to textiles into her practice. Current practice intersects the tensions between human interaction with the natural world.
