Born in Auckland, now living and working in Nelson, Lianne Edwards artwork reflects her fascination with the natural world and the place of humans within it. Growing up with a love of nature and drawing she completed a degree and post-graduate diploma in the natural sciences. She then worked in coastal and marine conservation. Her reinvention as an artist, following a degree in visual arts, results in art that resonates with her interest in both science and art to make comment on our relationship with the natural world. “By exploring our relationship with nature, I allude to notions of order and control, permanence and transience, chaos and beauty”.
