Lizzie’s biggest influences are her love of colour, and a great fascination for nature. She is very fortunate to work at Edinburgh Zoo which is a continuous source of delight and inspiration, and she never tires of the view of the penguins from her office window! Lizzie’s background is in design and media, and she has more than 10 years’ experience working in creative technologies across various industries from web development, graphic design and marketing to education. Lizzie moved to Edinburgh in 2017 to join the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RZSS) become the first Learning Technologist in a zoo in the UK, and enjoys using her unique combination of design, technology and education skills to help people connect with nature. Described as “impeccably cute” by Creative Bloq, the majority of Lizzie’s work is digital, and she spends a lot of time creating many different styles of computer illustration and artwork, both as part of her role with RZSS and on personal projects often for the joy of simply creating. Away from the screen, Lizzie also loves drawing, sketching, painting and embroidery. She will try almost anything creative so long as it’s colourful!
Lizzie’s sculpture Head in the Clouds is a fantasy world of cosy treehouses, sky-ship adventures and space exploration, inhabited by a magical array of animal-folk inspired by family and friends of the artist. Each critter is going about their days in this wonderful world – how many different creatures can you spot in the clouds?
