Hi there, I’m Lizzie and I’m an illustrator based in a small village in Warwickshire (UK) and I work with polymer clay and mixed media.

I’ve always been passionate about illustration, and I went to art school upon leaving high school. I signed up for a visual communication course specialising in illustration which was brilliant. All was to change, however, when I stumbled across air-dry clay in a class workshop – and I suddenly realised that I didn’t have to stress out about my drawing style as I could work in 3D!

I immediately began experimenting with air-dry clay, but I still felt a little frustrated by its limitations for creating finer detail. Luckily, I came across polymer clay around a year ago and I instinctively knew it was the right creative material for me and so my ‘Clay Disarray’ studio was born!

After much playing around and head scratching (as polymer clay is a very different beast to air-dry clay), and inspired by my love of film, I began work on a series of ‘polymer posters’ – essentially a humorous take on alternative film posters. Creating my posters allows me to work in different ways, as sculpture, photography and digital skills all play an important part, and this way of working, I believe, helps to keep my work fresh and interesting.

Although they’re fairly simplistic in their design, each poster takes at least a few days to complete as it can take quite some time to get that one perfect image to work with – but I think it’s more than worth it in the end!
