Elizabeth Loveday's paintings are created on a surface of handmade gesso. She says: 'My subject matter is primarily portraiture and narratives, characters within folklore and my own life intermingled with magic realism.'
Born in Truro, she grew up in a small village in Cornwall. She spent a year at Goldsmiths College in London, studying Fine Art, and then three years studying Illustration at UWE, Bristol, graduating with a BA (Hons). She works from a studio in Carn Brea, near Camborne.
