About

Making flags combines my love of painting, woodworking, and recycling.

Halyard: /ˈhalyərd/ a rope used for raising and lowering a flag.

Liza Wallman is an oddball. As a child she would paint at the kitchen counter, her tongue sticking out as an indication of her concentration. As Liza grew up, Dawn, Liza's mom, would commission her daughter to make art knowing that Liza loved doing it. Although she no longer sticks out her tongue when she paints, Liza does still get lost in the process. In 2012, Dawn asked Liza to paint a large Canadian flag for her. Liza painted the flag using reclaimed wood from her family’s barn as the canvas. She then sanded and stained the flag to give it a vintage feel. Friends and family have asked her to create their own flag upon seeing the first one she created. This process of creating has given her so much pleasure that she is pursuing painting flags full time under the business called Halyard.

Liza also fancies herself to be a bit of an academic. She finished her MA in Contemporary Art History from OCAD University in 2014. She also holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Art History from Carleton University. History has greatly influenced her work as flags have served as a visual mode of unifying entire nations for centuries. Her interest in not only Canadian history but the histories of many countries allows for wide-ranging possibilities in the variety of flags she can interact with. Halyard is the rope that hoists any flag and the shop that paints any flag!
