Wren pencil drawing

Liz Chapman is a Wigan-based artist, her artistic practice is an attentive exploration of the treasures found in science and nature. Chapman is intrigued by weave and weft, colour and shapes that often go unnoticed in the world around us. Her practice uses a wide range of mediums including textiles, digital technology and recycled materials to record her observations. She experiments with digital media, photo, moving-image, fabrics, pen and pencil to recreate the qualitative elements and synthetic representation of her everyday environment.

Chapman has a Certificate of Higher Education in Art & Design and graduated with a BA Honours degree in Art History in 2014. Chapman has been an Associate Artist with Cross Street Arts since 2016 and recently became Trustee.

Between 2016 – 2018, Chapman coordinated the D:Circus Digital Art Project; a two-year programme funded by Arts Council England and Wigan Council, working with Wigan Libraries and Museums to deliver high quality digital art.

She founded Artist Discuss in 2018, a peer support initiative for artists of all creative background and deliver this on a voluntary basis and in fellowship with TERM Art Classes. Chapman recently set up the Wigan & Leigh Art Map to map the art community across Wigan Borough.
