About the Artist

Liz Copeland (Bellevue) is passionate about textiles and color. She combines her 24 years of fiber art experience with her exploration of her spiritual path. Her work captures those moments when we experience the connections between the different layers of our own being and the greater world. Whether it is as energy bodies dancing through life, or the calm of the natural world where she finds her spiritual center, her work expresses the feelings of those deeper connections.

By using commercial and hand-dyed fabrics, Liz pulls the viewer in at a visceral level. She indirectly references the daily connection we all have with fabric that starts in childhood and continues throughout life. By layering these fabrics and using images that connect at a more abstract and analytical level, she creates art that connects the multiple levels of the brain while showing the multiple levels of life.
