Lizette Chirrime produces mostly mixed media works, often combining textiles and found objects. These materials may be incorporated into paintings, or take the form of wall hangings. Her works frequently incorporate autobiographical aspects, reflecting her life’s journey and dreams. She also displays a strong inclination towards the use of symbols, abstracting forms to their essential elements.
