This artwork was inspired by reconnecting with nature. The artist believes that immersing yourself in nature regularly has a great impact on humans flourishing—our social, psychological, and emotional life. Being in nature, living near nature, or even viewing nature in paintings and videos can have positive impacts on our brains, bodies, feelings, thought processes, and social interactions. Lizzio wanted to bring a little piece of this to the backstreets of Frankston.

Forgotten fairy tales, spectacles of cinema, fleeting glances and dog eared National Geographic’s are Lizzio’s inspiration to make art and tell her stories.
