Liz Jeary (b.1980) is a UK photographer based on The Wirral, Merseyside and Dawlish, Devon. She is a Kimono wearing, budgie loving, picture taking, Bowie listening, Kate Bush singing, gap toothed artist. Having a love for textures, street, fashion and extreme close-ups, her contemporary and innovative approach to photography and digital imaging produces results that are indicative of her perspective on life.
Liz has a wealth of experience in retail management, freight forwarding, property management and customer services, and recently returned to education to pursue her enjoyment of photography. She graduated in 2014 with a First Class BA Hons Degree (Photography) and a Commendation from The University of Salford. Liz also works as a Freelance Curator and Project Manager for various exhibitions.
Her work has been published in several international magazines and included in various group exhibitions. She recently celebrated a successful solo exhibition at Marine Point, New Brighton. Liz is represented by Dot-Art Gallery in Liverpool.
Liz’s work involves experimentation with photographs as an object, using the surface as material to be embroidered and sewn. Her “photobroderie” creations are unique to her as she creates the images from her own photographs, prints, and embroiders each one. No one print will be the same as the next. Although she will produce limited quantities of each image, because they are hand sewn, the final positioning of the thread will vary on each individual print.
