Liz Hunn – Artist
Liz has been painting since 2010. Oils are her medium.
She remains undecided what genre she likes to paint best, but is currently favouring portraits. It really is whatever enchants her at the time. This often sets her on a journey to develop the subject further.
She has been the people’s choice winner a few times at different community exhibitions, including Hobart Rotary Art Show , Kingborough Lions Art Show and lastly but by no means the least, the Channel Regional art show in the Kettering Hall !
Her art education has been through adult education and workshops with different painters she admires, both in Tasmania and interstate. She sells her finished work and take commissions.
