Elizabeth Haines

Elizabeth Haines’s work has been influenced over the years both by her interest in the relationship between the different arts, and also by a temporary injury which forced her to paint with her left hand, a practice she now continues when necessary. Painting with her left hand (and so, we are told, with the right side of the brain) has enabled her to work more freely from memory and imagination.

She loves the early 20th century European painters such as Klee and Kandinsky and the British school, including Palmer, Hitchens, the St Ives painters and the Scottish colourists. Her interest in the relationships between the different arts has developed over the years, and in 2001 she completed a Ph.D. in Philosophy at the University of Wales, Lampeter.
