About Liz Ewings
I am a Seattle native. I love to visit new places, and even live in them, but I keep returning to the West Coast. Kind of like a salmon, but without the spawning. I spent many years in the fashion industry, then visited Australia and saw whales for the first time. Whales catalyzed my return to the Northwest to study natural science illustration, and oceanography at the University of Washington. In my work as a naturalist in the San Juan Islands and Southeast Alaska, and became fascinated with our relationship to nature.
I am inspired by oceanic flora and fauna, and use their morphology to examine our relationship with the ocean in my work.
