We are delighted to have an original card by Eliza Southward. Three Cyclists has been created especially for the CultureLabel / Art on a Postcard 'Postcard Lottery' launching on 31 March.
Eliza has been painting all her life and received her 1st commission for a Spanish children's book when she was just 13. From the age of ten she spent her childhood in a remote part of Spain, where she grew up drawing and painting scenes of local life in the mountains. 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. She spent several years working as a designer for Eric Parry Architects in London and later Arup Associates. However, having realised that she enjoyed carrying out the ‘artist’s impression’ part of her job more than any other, she finally decided to give up architectural practice in order to work full time on her own art projects.
Her clients include Rapha, Bloomsbury, Laurence King Publishing, Magma, the V&A Museum, Brompton Bicycles, Boneshaker magazine, Sustrans, the London Cycling Campaign, Bourne and Hollingsworth, Epic Magazine and Cono Sur Wines. She has also regularly takes on artwork commissions for private clients.
