Liz and Kate Pope have created art together since leaving Staffordshire University in 2001. They both gained a first class degree in surface pattern design. During this time, Kate became passionate about color, often experimenting with bold shapes, combining patterns, collage, and mixed media. Liz edged more toward illustration; she focused more on finer detail and lines, soon finding a real style of her own. Liz lets loose with details of London buses and taxis, while Kate creates colorful skylines with interesting blocks of color. Their adventure as artists began when they were kids in the bedroom they grew up in. They now work at Liz's house in a small studio that is full to the brim with paints, collage papers, children's books, and sketchbooks.
