Elizabeth (Liz) Hosier grew up outside of Asheville; the forest was her playground, while drawing and other creative endeavors her pastime. Liz was fortunate to have teachers who recognized and nurtured her interest in art throughout her early education. She holds an MBA and a BS in Mathematics and moved in the mid-80s to continue her Information Technology (IT) profession at UNC Wilmington. While at UNCW she studied art history and studio art. When the opportunity to retire presented itself, Liz began to seriously pursue her love of art and to seek her artist voice.
Obsessed with colors and light, her work has evolved into process-based abstract painting which gives Liz the freedom to consider a variety techniques, colors and materials.
Liz’s strong connection with nature and innate need to be creative are reflected in her artwork. She works primarily in oil, mixed media, encaustic, and occasionally acrylics. A teaching artist at Museum School at Cameron Art Museum (Wilmington) and member of Diverse Works Art Group (Wilmington), Liz’s work can be seen at Gallery Citrine (Wilmington), ACME Arts Studios (Wilmington), Platypus & Gnome (Wilmington, February 2020), and at local and regional exhibitions and shows throughout the southeastern United States.
