is an interdisciplinary painter who merges craft techniques, sculpture, printmaking, mixed-media, photography, and sound. Born in Memphis, Tennessee, she received her M.F.A. in Painting from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn (2002), and an M.S. in Teaching from Pace University (2008) in Manhattan. After residing in New York City for almost a decade, she returned to Athens, Georgia (where she earned her B.F.A from the University of Georgia in Photography) to set up her studio practice. Her work has been exhibited extensively throughout the United States and has received multiple awards. Liddell hosts a podcast (Peachy Keen) as an extension of her art practice, interviewing women on art and the South. She teaches Painting and Drawing at the University of North Georgia.
