ELIZA SOUTHWOOD

 

 

From the age of ten she spent her childhood in a remote part of Spain, winning several local art competitions. Her creative streak was later channelled into architectural design, and she graduated from Glasgow School of Art with a degree in Architecture, later finishing her postgraduate architectural studies in London.Eliza Southwood practiced as an architect for ten years before deciding to take up a career as an artist and illustrator full-time in 2011, although she has consistently drawn and painted throughout her life. Her first illustration commission was a Spanish children’s book, when she was aged 13. 

She spent several years working as a designer for Eric Parry Architects in London however, she finally decided to give up architectural practice in order to work full time on her own art projects.
