About the artwork
A pair of dancing birds. Darwin found these cute little dancing birds on the Galapagos Islands. The blue footed booby has bright blue feet, the healthier they are, the bluer the feet and the more successful and popular they are. They are known for their mating dance where they lift up their feet to display them to potential partners. I have evolved them further to give them brightly coloured bodies and feet.Original hand pulled limited edition of 50, 7 colour screen print on Heritage White 315 gsm. paper.

About Liz Whiteman Smith

Liz is a freelance printmaker, currently living in London. She creates series of limited edition, multi layered colourful screen prints to make people smile, she loves seeing the reaction of people looking at her playful dinosaurs or colourful blue footed boobies. She also makes intricate prints of London buildings, reflecting her fascination with the ever-evolving layers of the cityscape.

Liz creates her limited edition prints by drawing and colouring the image, then producing positives which are exposed onto silk screens. There is a separate screen for each colour, through which ink is pushed, before the final image is created by carefully lining up all the screens. Liz exhibits regularly in the UK and has collectors all over the world.

A quote from Liz "Using colour to create playful images, my aim is to make people smile."
