Elizabeth Forrest

I am a lettering artist and paper-maker. I aim to bring lettering and the beauty of lettering to the forefront of contemporary design. I want to make lettering relevant and meaningful in today’s world. My work is a highly personal, emotional response to text from the varied sources that inspire me and is based on a love of words, combined with a passion for colour and texture. I enjoy the process of making my own heavily textured paper and incorporating it in my work. Paper and paint combine to produce a strong sense of visual drama. Sometimes words and quotations suggest their own visual imagery, while at other times a texture or a particular ‘palette’ of colours influence my choice of words. I use text as a springboard for making my own personal visual statement.
