Lis Naylor is a contemporary figurative artist and sculptor who paints her life models whilst ballet dancing or practising gymnastics.

Pushing their muscular bodies to the limits of their ability, Lis lightly touches the paper with a gesture from her rigger brush dipped in ink, replicating the gracefulness whilst creating a sense of tension and intense activity in a moment.

The simplicity of her gestural paintings transfers honestly to her contemporary hand finished silk screen prints.
