Australian textile artist Liz Payne's artwork for Byron Bay Writers Festival


Custom artwork for this years festival of the theme Wild Imagination involved taking a concept from brief to finished artwork and then digitised to be used across all of the festival marketing and media collateral.
Inspired by the scope, universal magnitude and possibilities that the theme evokes, my design portrays different shapes inspired by natural elements referencing the natural world and land we are on, and our place in the universe.
The artwork is hand stitched and beaded on cotton and will be exhibited throughout the Byron Writers Festival in Byron Bay.

Finished artwork onto festival marketing collateral.

Final framed artwork



I was commissioned by a previous client who wanted a third artwork to complete the ones she had previously purchased from me at an art show where I was exhibiting.

After some drawings inspired by the movement created by listening and responding to music, a final design and colour palette was agreed upon before commencing the artwork. Titled 'Light On' this artwork is approx 25 x 25cm and 
completely hand stitched on cotton.

In 2019, I collaborated with the iconic Australian fashion label again for their 10 Year Collaboration Celebrations which saw 10 collaborating artists chosen for a collection included in Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival runway and group exhibition at Heide. My artwork 'Equality' was used for this collaboration, and artworks 'Equality', 'The One' and 'Origins' were exhibited.

I was commissioned by a bride-to-be wanting a one of a kind pair of sneakers to wear on her big day. Two sample swatches were made (below) with slight differences in materials and colour palette before choosing the more pastel pinks threads, beads and sequins that were hand stitched onto Converse sneakers.

In May 2020, I was asked by Arctic Fox ANZ to customise a Kanken backpack with embroidery using nature as the inspiration. The bag is hand stitched and beaded across the entire surface with motifs inspired nature and a psychedelic 70's aesthetic.
