Curriculum Vitae

Though now a resident of Sweden Elizabeth Tyler was born in England and educated at art college there. She has been a professional artist for five decades and exhibits her artworks regularly at galleries and art museums in Sweden, Denmark and Finland. In recent years she has participated in international art exhibitions worldwide.

She is the author of “Akvarelbogen” (The watercolour book) published by Gydendals publishing house in Copenhagen, 2005. The ebook “Watercolour in detail” published in 2012 is also written and illustrated by her.

Elizabeth Tyler often finds her subject matter in a small area of a stony beach and the borderline between the sea and the shore is a symbolic and important source of inspiration for her.
