Eliza Piro

Eliza Piro was born in Adelaide and spent her younger years growing up in Clare in the mid North of South Australia. She studied art at Pembroke College where her love and passion for the subject evolved. Further study at Melbourne School of Photography gave her a greater understanding of colour, texture and form and led into experimenting with different mediums.

Eliza's inspiration comes from the shapes and patterns witnessed during travels through Asia, especially India where she has spent considerable time. Her paintings convey a sense of her journeys and will remind the viewer of rich and elegant fabrics.

Eliza uses mediums of sand to give a grainy texture and gold ink to outline and create richness. Her works display an abundance of colour with intricate and repetitive pattern. Many of her paintings have borders and always feature a tree or living subjects.

Eliza's work is also fuelled by a passion for her love of the environment. She is very aware of our fragile environment and the continued and compounding pressure of the polluting effects of our lifestyles. Her current and much of her future work will depict flora and fauna as she wishes to present art that will express the beauty of our surroundings and alert the viewer to our fragile environment.
