Inspired by light, color, and nature.

Inspired by light, color, and nature. Elizabeth realized at a very young age that art and creating was her passion, her calling.

Graduating with a degree in Graphic Design, she commenced working at an advertising agency in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Elizabeth enjoyed city life, but an opportunity arose to travel across Canada and throughout the United States with fellow artists. This adventure provided her with invaluable artistic insights and enriching life experiences. Upon return to Ontario, Canada, she settled out of the city to a smaller town in Northern Ontario. Here Elizabeth started up a successful illustration studio called, Illustratus. Elizabeth displayed her artistic diversity by creating illustrations and design for businesses such as Pet Smart as well as fine art commissions for collectors such as NHL hockey players.

Several years later, on a meditation retreat in New York, United States, a momentous event occurred in Elizabeth's life. It was a time of deep introspection. This profoundly shifted her artistic focus from fine detail work to painting with a sense of freedom; uninhibited.

Elizabeth now paints in thick oils with an impressionistic vigor, aspiring to rouse an awakening or emotion in her viewer; to feel the joy in the vivid colors and subjects.

Elizabeth's work has been exhibited in Northern Ontario, Vancouver, and Victoria, British Columbia. Her work has also been featured in several magazines. Most recently, Elizabeth's work was featured in 'Women in Art 278' magazine and Art Quench Magazine's, Masters Edition.

Elizabeth's themes are those that resonate with her inner passions and reflect her deep appreciation for nature. Subjects that make her smile or inspire a sense of awe often bring her into the studio for 8 to 15 hour days. From driving down a country road and seeing a breathtaking field of sunflowers to the way the light sparkles on a koi pond, for Elizabeth, inspiration is everywhere.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

Artist's Statement:
To me art is everything. I have been painting my whole life but as a full time artist since 2010. I take my inspiration from nature. I express my love for our earth, and every living creature on it; plant and animal, through my vibrant oil paintings. Always striving to make an impact and leave the observer of my work in awe. I paint to bring the joy and beauty of nature to the viewer.

Exciting things are happening in the studio. Recently I find my strong attraction to abstract painting guiding my direction. My focus is on bringing the passion I have for abstract painting and harmonizing it with my love for my impressionist roots. My new style is called, Abstract-Impressionism.

However, as you will see and feel, you will continue to be able to identify my work by the vibrant colors, usage of light, and distinctive luminous ambiance.

The beautiful red fox pauses for a moment in the setting sun.

This is the first in my new abstract-impressionist collection called, Wilderness. This painting, and the others to follow, will be an expression of my deep appreciation for nature.

A poem I enjoy about foxes is,

Straight Talk From Fox, by Mary Oliver.

Listen says fox it is music to run
over the hills to lick dew from the leaves
to nose along the edges of the ponds
to smell the fat ducks in their bright feathers
but far out, safe in their rafts of sleep.
It is like music to visit the orchard,
to find the vole sucking the sweet of the apple,
or the rabbit with his fast-beating heart.
.....It is music to wander the black back roads outside of town
no one awake or wondering ...

This is my abstract-impressionist expression of the amazing peacock. Here he shakes his plume after a rainfall.

I had so much fun painting this piece. I felt free and uninhibited. I wanted to push the boundaries of my comfort zone.

Colourful, textural and expressive. This is a statement piece that will add the "wow" factor to any space.

I love painting cactus. I think they are beautiful, dramatic, and unique.

As I was painting, Homecoming I knew I wanted to express a combination of hope and nostalgia. However, a hint of melancholy may have drifted in depending on how you are feeling when you observe this work.

This is my abstract painting of my favorite hiking trail, Cascade Trail, in the Blue Mountains. On this trail you hike up, and up, until you finally reach the top, where you feel as if you can touch the sky. Looking down everything is so small. A lighthouse looks like a speck. The towns are all laid out before you in grids, orderly and neat, but here, on Cascade Trail, you feel far away from civilization. Here at the top you can find, The Bruce Trail, where you can hike for days.

Hiking Cumberland Trail* By William A Poppen
Snap, crack, snap -- twigs break underneath
Each burst is music fed deep into her heart
Balmy air blows crisp across her cheek
A kiss as sweet as a daughter's caress
Pride inhaled with each labored breath
Seventeen miles of inclines and slopes
Over fallen trees and swollen creeks
Intentional steps, stitches of success sewn into
the blanket of her soul as she
wanders along the path of her
journey to renewal

This oil on gallery canvas is vibrant and sensuous with a medium textural appeal.

Wild Heart started out as an artist painting late into the night. Then somehow mid-painting the brush took a new direction into the midnight forest. Strong and free, Wild Heart represents to me that with determination, anything is possible.

Wild Heart is a sensuously textured oil on canvas painting. Mysterious and alluring.

I was instantly captivated by this gorgeous bird. I did a couple of sketches first and then decided to keep the background minimalist/abstract so that this beauty would stand out.

Here is my finished oil on canvas painting of the beautiful Victoria Crowned Pigeon. This stunning bird, with its exquisite plume, lives on the island of New Guinea and on a few surrounding islands.

I plan on exploring artistically with this subject, and hopefully more paintings will be created to show you.

Victoria the Crowned Pigeon, is a lightly textured oil painting. Vibrant and alive with splendor.

When I was younger every summer we traveled to the prairies to visit my grandparents. So many amazing memories and visions of nature's strength and beauty.

than what you believe.”

While living on the West Coast of Canada for many years I gained a deep appreciation for the incredibly beautiful, and powerful mountains.

"There is a spirit of energy and vigor in mountains, and they impart it to all who approach their presence."
