Liz Oliver grew up in North Carolina and, ever drawn to the mystery of the mountains, got her foothold in textile arts at Appalachian State University. Well after graduation, she continues to develop her textile knowledge at different institutions, including Penland School of Crafts. After determining her next move was in costume design, Liz discovered her passion for dyeing. Soon after, she made the leap to LA and became a dyer in the LA Motion Picture Costumer's Union.
Liz currently works as a freelance textile artist in both the film/tv industry for various costume designers, and independently as a fine artist. Within her work with designers, she utilizes her excellent color matching skills, as well as painting and distressing. When she is not working on a production, Liz is exploring her love of pattern, color and texture through the art of Shibori.
