Liz grew up in the Midwest, an outdoor kid from the beginning. She enjoyed catching critters and observing wildlife. Her family shared with her their love for shooting, bird hunting & fishing, which became an integral part of her life. Liz later became a sponsored sporting clays shooter for Beretta, USA. All the while she was never far from her art supplies, and she created the subjects she knew and loved most.
Liz is a juried member of the NATIONAL SOCIETEY OF ANIMAL ARTISTS. She exhibits her work every year at the SOUTHEASTERN WILDLIFE EXPOSITION in Charleston, SC, and SAFARI CLUB INTERNATIONAL in LasVegas, NV. Liz's work has been featured at the Calgary Stampede, Pheasants Forever and National Wild Turkey Foundation functions, and The Emerson Cultural Center Art Auction. Her bronzes have also been featured in At Home Magazine, Virginia Sportsman Magazine, Sporting Classics and Shooting Sportsman. She is currently represented by five fine art galleries, in addition to several fine firearm dealer locations across the US.
Calling Bozeman home now for 20 years, artist Liz Lewis continues to draw on her life of sporting experience as a fly fishing guide, outdoor photographer, shooting instructor, avid bird and big game hunter and equestrienne. Liz earned a bachelor's in Fish & Wildlife Biology from MSU, but jokingly admits holding an "advanced degree" earned from the prairies, rivers and mountains of Montana. Her subjects include trout fishing, horses, bird dogs, wildlife and various other subjects whose form she admires. Liz prides herself in attention to proportion and scientific accuracy, while still interpreting the finer elements of the subject, which stir the emotions of the viewer. Liz 's bronzes often tell a story. Sometimes it's a scene frozen in her memory that she shares from life as a guide, as a hunter or even just as a dog owner. The "situational bronze" shows that particular moment of truth, and leaves the rest for your imagination.
