The Artist who saved my date night
18 July 2020
" As we made our way upstairs and through the Smeg fridge door...we were met by a smile that cannot be expressed of how great and infectious it was...Cut to six months later on the London Overground near Dalston sides and I see this sunny smile step onto the carriage. "Elizabeth" I shouted...I find it incredibly convenient how someone’s art can resonate with the exact mind space and events that one is experiencing in life at that present moment and I found that to be the case with Lizzie and her Diving boards series in particular (more about this series below), which ran parallel with the confidence and doubt I was living through at that moment Lizzie came along.

Surviving Art Podcast
Chatting about art school and creativity
18 Oct 2019
Hosted by founder and artist Matej Tomažin
"To kick it all off, today’s run-and-gun podcast (meaning, please excuse the London traffic in the background, it’s inevitable), is with Lizzie Reid from Lizzie’s Lines.
We talked about art school and why going to art school might not be the best option (at least not in places, where education isn’t free (I’m still amazed that people come out of college with debt almost as large as the GDP of a small country). And we also explored her views on the possibilities curatives have in London at this very moment, how a longer hiatus can actually be good for you and much, much more."
