The artist: Love grew up in Memphis, and took private art lessons at an early age. She graduated with a BA in studio art from the University of Mississippi.
The company/studio: Lizzy Love Art, based in Nashville, started roughly in 2015. The artist works in her in-home studio.
The art & materials: Figurative paintings on both canvases and watercolor paper with acrylic and watercolor and gouache paints.
What’s popular: Her bold, colorful “ladies” paintings ($200 to $6,000) have attracted new galleries and clients.
“This body of work has been a rebirth for me creatively,” said Love, who for the last five years has been painting mostly landscapes.
- The love and reverence she has for all the women in her life: “The women who have shaped me, lifted me up when I needed it, laughed with me, and inspired me.”
- Fashion and interior design.
- Shapes and patterns in fabric and wallpaper.
Fun or special commissions: A painting of a little girl and her mother in her abstract style.
