Loz is an experimental artist working with the natural world to question and explore the human condition.
Loz's art practice evolved from her extensive experience in clothing design and costume design for theatre.
Drawing inspiration from the world around her, Loz brings together textiles, natural materials, illustrations, paintings and prose in new and unusual ways.
Loz hopes to open dialogue and different ways of thinking about our relationships with self, other and the environment. Her art practice is focused on our anxious and often anxiety-provoking relationship with the world around us.
Couture-trained, Loz has worked at Vivienne Westwood and had her clothing in prominent boutiques in London. Loz's clothing gallery in Melbourne's inner west also became a space for collaboration with local
Loz is now based in Trentham and continues to explore visual arts through a variety of media.
