About the Author

Sydney-born Australian Elizabeth Turnbull is a self-taught intuitive artist who began painting more than thirty years ago and has been painting and drawing ever since, having worked and exhibited both in Australia and overseas in Italy, Spain, the UK and France.. In recent years she has also participated in a number of major overseas group exhibitions of 'outsider' art, the most recent being in Raw Art Festival in New York (2007) and Los Angeles (2008). Her early works were predominantly about shape, form and especially color, often inspired by organic forms and strange animal shapes. Profoundly affected by the 1979 exhibition 'Outsiders' at London's Hayward Gallery she has since found the revelatory power of instinctive artistic expression - in her own work and that of other 'outsider' artists - to open doorways to deep universal truths, to be a source of wonder and inspiration. New strong themes began appearing in her painting - a deeper spirituality, the Feminine and its connection with ancient Goddess mythology. A move in 2002 to Australia's island State, Tasmania, heightened her awareness of the beauty and wonder of the natural world and the changing seasons, and gave her a deeper sense of our interconnectedness with every atom, past and present, of the entire universe. This was reflected in a major body of work 'The Ancestors' (2002-2007) - an overarching view of the oneness of all humankind and nature that not only sees common ancestral ties present in all of us, in our very cells and in everything that exists, but also sees us and all of nature as being somehow present in them. She has been writing now for over twenty years; Whisperings of Angels is her third book, her previous two books being as yet unpublished. She lives and works in Tasmania where she and her husband divide their time between their home in Hobart and a small miner's cottage at Cornwall in the north-east of that State.
