Local Artist: Lizann Allan
Lizann was born in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and raised in Edinburgh, Scotland. She has always enjoyed travel and exploring new places. Lizann loves the outdoors and likes to record what she sees in order to share it with others.
Taking Fine Arts courses at University and teaching art at the elementary school level satisfied some of her artistic interests, but after moving to Kelowna and becoming a part of the exciting art community in the Okanagan, Lizann found more time to paint and explore various mediums. She enjoys watercolour and mixed media techniques, although she prefers the versatility and vibrancy of acrylic paints and the use of bright colours to illustrate the beauty of the Okanagan surroundings.
In the pursuit of learning new techniques and growing an an artist, Lizann has participated in workshops with various different local artists and finds inspiration in her love of travel and photography. She is a member of the Painters Studio Group at the Rotary Centre For The Arts and has displayed her work in various locations in and around Kelowna, including the annual Lake Country Artwalk.
