Liz Toohey-Wiese BFA (ECUAD), MFA (NSCAD)
Liz Toohey-Wiese is a graduate from the MFA program at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. She completed her undergraduate degree in painting at Emily Carr University, also undertaking coursework at the University of Victoria and the École Nationale des Beaux-Arts de Lyon. She has taken part in solo and group shows across Canada, and travelled to Scandinavia in May 2016 as a recipient of the W.B. Bruce Fine Art Travel Scholarship. Deeply interested in the history of landscape painting, her paintings explore contemporary relationships between identity and place. Born and raised in the suburbs of Vancouver, her work seeks to intervene in the broader notion of “landscape” in the cities and the surrounding natural areas she finds herself in.
