Liz Dexter - Materials

Liz Dexter - Materials

Liz Dexter is a mixed media artist and architect who spends her days finding beauty and joy in the imperfect, unfolding layers of our lives, and discovering awe and wonder in our midst. Liz develops her paintings using many layers of acrylic, collage, plaster, image transfers and glazes – sanding, scraping, and cutting into them along the way to see what is uncovered. She is inspired by the continually transforming world around us by weather and age - crumbling stucco, rusting metal, peeling paint and vine-covered walls - the built environment being consumed by nature. During our conversation, Liz reveals her thoughts about decay, art pods, and the pain of self-promotion.


  1. Your artistic voice is already inside of you
  2. Sometimes “ready enough” is the point you where you need to put yourself out there.
  3. Just do the next thing in the art that needs to be done.
  4. Live your definition of being a good person.
  5. Consider creating an art pod.
