Liz Haywood-Sullivan, PSA-MP, IAPS/MC, is a representational landscape artist painting in the pastel medium. Her award-winning paintings are defined by strong contrasts and color, dramatic lighting, and graphic compositions, which often feature the interplay between man and the environment.

In 1996, she left the design world to follow her passion for fine art and since then has worked as a dedicated professional artist, art educator, and arts advocate. Liz is a President Emerita of the International Association of Pastel Societies (2013-2017) where she managed 3 international conventions and 12 international exhibitions. She has earned Master Pastelist status with the Pastel Society of America and has her Master Circle designation with IAPS. Liz’s paintings have appeared in art magazines around the world, and she appears in 12 Artist Network videos, and in numerous books including Pure Pastel, and Art Journey America:Landscapes. She also authored the popular instructional book Painting Brilliant Skies and Water in Pastel (Northlight Books 2013.) Her artwork is represented by Vose Galleries of Boston, the oldest family-owned gallery in the US. In addition to her paintings, Liz’s current schedule includes teaching workshops nationally and internationally, along with judging and demonstrating for numerous pastel societies and art organizations.
