Elizabeth Bessant

Elizabeth Bessant Landscape artist of the year series 2021

As an artist, Elizabeth has gone full circle. She started her career as a printmaker exhibiting at the Royal Academy of Art and regularly in the UK, Europe, New York and LA. Her journey has taken her through 28 years as a couture designer where fashion became her medium of expression dressing society women, couture brides and celebrities. The world of magazines, advertising and media have influenced her work as she steps away from fashion and returns to her artist roots. 

Her latest collages use cut and tear to paint ‘Landscapes from the Imagination’. This technique creates a hybrid art form that builds images by remixing, overlaying and re-contextualising fragments of daily life that appear in print media. Nothing is what it seems. 

Elizabeth is listed in Who’s Who in International Art and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Artists.
