Best known as a printmaker, Lizzie Horne is a foundation member and current president of the Black Gully Printmakers at the Museum of Printing at the New England Regional Art Museum in Armidale, NSW. As well as printing and teaching in her home studio, Lizzie runs a regular printmaking class for NERAM in the Museum of Printing.
She was the inaugural winner of the Helen Dangar Memorial Art Bursary, which she used in 2018 to further her printmaking studies at Il Bisonte studio in Florence. She was assisted in this with a Quick Response grant provided by Regional Arts NSW through the Regional Arts Fund, an Australian Government initiative supporting the arts in regional, remote and very remote Australia. Her work has been selected for a number of national award exhibitions, including the 2019 Peebles Print Prize, Inkmasters in 2018 and 2016, and the 2018 Stanthorpe Art Prize.
Lizzie is also a published poet and children's writer, journalist, speechwriter and copywriter. The central poem of her book Kangaroos in my blood and other poems was the foundation of the exhibition of the same name at NERAM. She is participating as a writer in Art Word Place, the Artstate exhibition in Tamworth in November, 2019. Lizzie is paired with painter Michelle Hungerford, who has used Lizzie's words as a springboard for her own contribution to the show.
Her next solo show is "The uncivilized garden" opening at NERAM on Friday, February 5, 2020.
