Born in Bristol in 1974, Liese studied Fine Art at the University of Plymouth, graduating in 2000. After
graduation she worked in education and went on to undertake a PGCE in Further Education Art.
Following this she taught abroad and at the local college as an Art and Special Educational needs
tutor, whilst also continuing with her art practice. Since 2009 she has been combining being a full-
time mother with creating and exhibiting.
Liese is interested in somehow capturing the essence of a place or memory of somewhere that has
held a particular fascination, typically the sea or a landscape setting. Liese works instinctively, using
intuition to develop the work whilst conquering continually emerging challenges regarding
composition, form and colour harmony along the way. Her semi-abstract paintings have many layers
where they have been reworked, often taking weeks or even years to resolve. Colour features
strongly within her work, in particular the power of the relationship between certain colours. A
common theme within Liese’s paintings is the juxtaposition between order and chaos and the
dichotomy between flat, clean areas with more gestural elements.
