A full-time artist, Liz Hess is the fourth child of missionaries to Honduras, Central America, where she was born. Returning home with her family in the early 1970s, she grew up in Lancaster. Even as a young girl, she was known for her artistic ability, collecting awards for her work throughout her childhood and teenage years.
Annual trips in the United States and abroad continue to serve as her inspiration and one of her most popular collections is the Red Umbrella series, first created during one of those trips. Once a year, Liz travels abroad to spend several weeks painting on location. Trying to capture on canvas such beautiful locations as the old world charm of Tuscany, the canals of Venice, the lavender fields of Provence, or the brooding sea and landscapes of Ireland has proven to be invaluable in stretching Liz’s artistic imagination.
Liz is currently exibiting her work at our Cultural Center Art Gallery through October 25, 2016, with additional works on display at The Clubhouse. Liz sells her works through her gallery and online. Services include private commissions of any subject such as portraits and houses. Liz’s gallery is located at 140 N Prince St., Lancaster, PA 717.390.7222 • lizhess.com
