My work and Process
My name is Eliza Day-Green
I am a British native living and working in Los Angeles.  I spent many years as a textile artist in the fashion industry and I also taught textile design to fashion and merchandizing students.
These experiences gave me a unique insight into a world of colour, texture, and pattern that I now incorporate into my mixed media works on canvas, paper, and carboard. Drawing on the traditions and techniques of textile art, I strive to create a decorative narrative that combines both the abstract and representational in a surreal world.
Many of my works examine the convergence of fine art, fashion and gender issues as portrayed in the glossy world of the media.  I am also fascinated by the natural world.   Flowers, insects, sea creatures, birds and monkeys are recurring elements in my work; either as main subjects or unexpected details.
