Lizzie Waterfield is an illustrator based in Oxfordshire where she lives with her husband, daughter and two dachshunds.

Lizzie was born and grew up in beautiful North Yorkshire. At school art was always her favourite subject and at 6th Form she was lucky to be taught by a brilliant and inspirational art teacher. However a degree in English Literature at Edinburgh University, a P.G.C.E in Oxford and a career as a primary school teacher followed. Subsequently she enjoyed 6 years of helping children to have all the fun with the paint and PVA before finally realising her dream of full-time cutting and sticking! Lizzie enrolled on a BA Illustration and Graphic Design course in Banbury and graduated with first class honours in June 2006.
After graduation Lizzie's work was chosen to be exhibited in Bristol at the Aardman studio, in London at the Free Range Graduates Exhibition and the D&AD New Talent Show. In 2006 Lizzie's work was published in the jury-selected illustration annual AOI Images 32. She has sold her work at various exhibitions and fairs including The London Artists Book Fair, BABE at Bristol's Arnolfini gallery, and the Oxford Art Fair.

After the birth of her daughter in 2007 Lizzie took time out to care for her. Of course drawing and making, mostly in the form of cardboard-box cars and paper princesses, remained as part of nearly every day. Then in 2012 Lizzie began exhibiting again as part of Oxfordshire Art Weeks and has taken part in the art festival every year since. Lizzie's artwork is made using a combination of print, paper-cut and collage. Her colourful, quirky pictures are often inspired by an interest in fairytales and memories but personal projects have recently been populated by a growing menagerie of dogs, butterflies and beetles.
