Liz Waterhouse was born in Worcestershire, England and studied at Worcester College of Art and Design before relocating to Cardiff in 1999.
After completing a BA (hons) Fine Art and MA Fine Art at the University of Wales Institute, Cardiff (UWIC) Waterhouse went on to study for an MA in Arts and Health at Glamorgan University, graduating in 2012.
Waterhouse moved to Pembrokeshire in 2016 after spending much of her childhood in the area.
Waterhouse works in a variety of mediums including drawing, collage, sculpture and installation. Her main focus in recent years has been in the detailed drawing of birds using biro. Her interest lies not only in the detail of a single bird but the form that can be created by grouping them together.
Waterhouse has shown in a selection of venues all over the UK and internationally including Venice, Colorado (USA) and more recently in Berlin.
