Eliza practiced as an architect for ten years before deciding to take up a career as an artist and illustrator full-time in 2010, although she has consistently drawn and painted throughout her life. Her first illustration commission was a Spanish children’s book, when she was aged 13.
Having grown up in Spain, she spent a year in Italy and then moved to Scotland where she graduated from Glasgow School of Art with a degree in Architecture. Eliza later finished her postgraduate architectural studies in London. Eliza's speciality is silk screen printing, but she also works in mixed media, watercolour and acrylic. As a keen cycling fan, she is known particularly for her cycling themed artwork, but also produces work on a wide range of subjects such as cityscapes, dogs, sports and people. Selected clients include Rapha, Bloomsbury, Laurence King Publishing, Magma, the V&A Museum, Brompton Bicycles, Sustrans, the London Cycling Campaign, Bourne and Hollingsworth, Epic Magazine and Cono Sur Wines. She also regularly takes on artwork commissions for private clients.
