BIO

Hey there I'm Elizabeth McGarry 'The Purple Moon' (b.2000) has a particular desire for learning about the past, specifically dress and social histories. As a practising artist, she has a love for experimenting and playing with different types of media. Her main focus is working with textiles, collage, printmaking, graphic digital art, painting, and illustration; often mixing together a range of media. McGarry is also passionate about creating references to culture, society, environmental and political issues whether that be now or looking back at political and historical events; which remain relevant today in either a satirical manner or with a sense of seriousness.

If you like my work do feel free to drop me a message via any of my socials.

Thank you!!
