Multi-disciplinary Halifax based artist Liza Hageraats enjoys the options afforded by all the different media in which she creates her work. Whether drawing, painting, felting, embroidering or rug hooking, each informs the whole of her creative output in terms of color, texture, composition, content and execution.
Her current medium of choice is fine felt. The lack of use of mechanical tools and the hands on technique used to make felt from scratch, appeals to her desire to have a tactile connection with her work. It is a quiet, meditative process. The ability to create a limitless variety of forms and textures, from subtle to visually stunning, has taken this artist down many paths. She takes her inspiration from her own cultural background as well as the many cultures that she has been lucky enough to have been able to explore on her past travels around the globe. Her recent trip to Japan has had a profound effect on her current practice.
