Elizabeth Popham
Fine Art

I am a Peterborough-based painter and photographer. Looking out to the horizon in this beautiful natural environment, so full of lakes and waterways, forests and farms, is a gift to any artist. But, although many of my paintings are landscapes or street scenes, I enjoy shifting focus to the beauty that resides along the edge of the trail, remembering William Blake’s hope that we continue “to see heaven in a wildflower, and eternity in a grain of sand.”


Whether working on botanical studies, portraiture, life drawing or landscapes – and whether striving for high realist detail or abstraction – I am drawn to the elegance of shape and line. My favourite subjects could be called “micro-landscapes” or “natural abstracts.”
