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.

This is my first painting in my new studio. It will be another painting to add to my, "One Tree Series". In this work my focus is on creating an overall mood. Through nature and one tree, I represent human emotions. To me this painting symbolizes hope and peace. There will always be beautiful sunsets and nature's gifts to help us find peace.

"...Just beyond the sunset,
Lies a home for me
Where the world is peaceful
Like a paradise should be
Just beyond the sunset
Someday is where you will fine me." David Harris

Wherever You Are, is vibrant and alive with wonder.

Colorful Koi fish swim together; flowing on a gentle current. I wanted vibrant colors and lively movement to be central to this piece. It was my intention to create a happy vibe. I love painting Koi.

Interestingly, the Koi fish are thought to be a symbol of love and friendship by some.

Daydream was a painting that was on my mind for quite some time before I finally put brush to canvas. With this painting it was my intention to evoke a surreal emotion and dream like state of mind. I wanted, Daydream to be both mesmerizing and lucid.

Three koi swim among the lily pads in a lush pond as ripples expand on the surface of the water. I love to watch koi swim and interact with each other, the pond plants, water and light. Watching them flow and move, with their vibrant colors and whimsical fins, is like moving art. To me koi are dreamy and calming.

As with most of my work this piece has a vibrant color palette with a modern impressionist feel.

It is also interesting to note that Koi fish are traditionally symbolic of prosperity and good fortune.

I love painting koi and exploring movement and light on water. This is my expression of light on a pond at midnight. As the koi all move toward the light on the pond it creates a magical dance of color.

Long into the evening when the afterparty begins, the sunflowers dance. This painting was conceived when my still life arrangement started to wilt. I thought how amazing, that to me, they still retained their beauty, and would be the center piece for my party.

Afterparty is vibrant and alive with an expressive burst of color.

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 ...

The original work is brand new and presently available. It is 30"x 30" oil on gallery canvas and is museum quality.
