Holiday Package Inclusions
Artistic inspiration is in no short supply on Norfolk Island with evocative convict buildings, dramatic cliffs & seascapes, lush rainforest & brilliant turquoise waters.
“Originally from Sorrento, Victoria, I have lived in many places including WA, Coffs Harbour and moving to the Sunshine Coast Hinterland in 1996. I now reside in Mudjimba on the Sunshine Coast, QLD, where I run classes and workshops from my home studio and around the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane at various galleries and facilities.”
Working as a professional artist for over 30 years and tutor for over 20, Lizzie regularly teaches many workshops on the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Hervey Bay area – Seaside Artist’s Gallery, Redcliffe, Go Arty, Maroochydore, Griffith Flavourtech Exposed, as well as the Grafton Artsfest. She has also taken groups to the Greek Islands and Fiji.
Lizzie has held more than 20 solo exhibitions since 1994 and received 40 awards to date.
Lizzie enjoys a number of mediums, including: acrylic, watercolour, oil paint, and a range of drawing media – graphite, charcoals, pastel and/or a mixture of these across a range of surfaces, many of which she creates herself. Taking from nature, she often incorporates elements from her environment for a tactile, mixed media experience.
Working within a wide range of subject matter, such as: portraiture, equine, abstract, and figurative, Lizzie’s favourite inspiration is the marine/surfing/oceanic environment.
“There is a never ending source of material to both fascinate me and draw ideas from”
With a maximum size of 12 painters + partners, Lizzie is now taking bookings for her May 2021 Norfolk Island trip.
Partners & friends who do not wish to participate in the painting workshop are very welcome to come along; there is plenty to do on beautiful Norfolk Island whilst painters are out in the field. Contact Norfolk Island Travel Centre for more info.

Cancellation after final payment and ticketing as a result of Covid19
After final payment, and in the event of a lockdown of the Island or border closure from your destination it is unknown how Air New Zealand will handle issued tickets, however it is likely they will do as they have for other affected Covid19 bookings to date and hold your tickets over as a credit for next year’s En Plein Air Lizzie Connor event only. Please note Air New Zealand will not provide a refund. Similarly, we would expect accommodation and car hire partners to respond in the same way by holding your bookings as a credit to be used next year.
