paintings.

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. She was a finalist for the Hopper Prize in 2019. Her work has been shown throughout the United States, including such venues as the Wiregrass Museum of Art and the Macon Museum of Arts and Sciences. It will be featured at MOCAN (The Museum of Contemporary Art Nashville) this spring. Liddell hosts a podcast called Peachy Keen as an extension of her art practice, interviewing women on art and the South. She is an Assistant Professor of Painting and Drawing at the University of North Georgia, specializing in feminist theory and criticism in contemporary art and craft media in painting.
