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.

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.

Time Travelers is another brand new abstract expressionist painting inspired by the unknown. It is inspired by the mysteries of possible dimension that we cannot see but, perhaps we can feel, or even visit in our dreams.

Time Travelers is a medium textured oil on gallery canvas painting. I have deliberately painted the sides black. I feel that this demonstrates that the sides are not part of the painting. As well, I think having the sides black creates a beautiful contrast and enhances the work.

Time Travelers is sensuous and mysterious and will definitely fit any space. It has hints of silver flecks that glimmer through as the light moves across the surface.

This work will also come wired for your convenience. The painting is signed on the front and is signed and numbered on the back.

The work will be safely shipped and will come with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Thank you for visiting my gallery.

Morning Light And Memories, is an oil on gallery canvas abstract seascape. I wanted to share the calm, reflective, and dreamy feeling I get from being near water. When I was painting this I had visions of beautiful summer mornings by the sparkling water.

Morning Light And Memories, is a light to medium textured painting. The sparkles of light literally dance off the water. It is quite captivating. I presently have it hanging in my studio to gaze at when I am painting for inspiration. The sides are intentionally painted black as I feel that this demonstrates that the sides are not part of the painting. As well, I think having the sides black creates a beautiful contrast and enhances the work.

To me gold represents mystery. Some say it came from supernovae and neutron star collisions that occurred before the solar system formed. Ancient people regarded gold as sacred and used it to create their idols for worship. But it is also being used in modern times for electronic components and aerospace applications such as to protect space ships. Some even believe it has other worldly being connections.

When I was painting Everything Changes I was thinking about how time passes and things evolve. I was thinking about life and all its mysteries. I also recalled a poem that I would like to share:

Nothing Gold Can Stay-by Robert Frost
Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

Everything Changes is a mediumly textured oil on gallery canvas painting. It catches the light beautifully.

I have intentionally painted the sides black as I feel that this demonstrates that the sides are not part of the painting. As well, I think having the sides black creates a beautiful contrast and enhances the work.

"Despite all our noble efforts
to reach a treasured peak,
be it a dream of wealth
or love or poetic greatness
or spiritual and mystical heights,
we carry the summit within."
-Dr. Antony Theodore

Summits and Light is a beautifully textured oil on gallery canvas painting. This work was not created with modelling paste but rather by meticulously adding layer after layer until finally reaching the desired effect. The luscious blues and ice greens combine to create every delightful hue in that palette. Summits And Light is truly a must to be viewed in person. I have deliberately painted the sides black as I feel that this demonstrates that the sides are not part of the painting. As well, I think having the sides black creates a beautiful contrast and enhances the work.

Summits and Light is dreamy and uplifting. It will definitely suit any space.

A stunning sea turtle lights up the lagoon with its vibrant colors. Floating up to the surface of the water, magical light from the day above the sea highlights and reflects off of the impressive turtle.

To me this creates a shimmering awe-inspiring moment. As well when I was painting this, I thought again of the poem,

Nature Lessons,
By Bill Watkins,

"Much is to be learned when nature we, observe very patiently. For all nature it seems doth ebb and flow as does our life; wise to know. Flexibility of natures kind best humans heed, to peace find."

I love painting water and water life. I am enjoying exploring sea creatures and all the wondrous beauty below the water.

I have always been captivated by coyotes, wolves, and foxes. I love painting them because they are subject that is perfect for my expressive style and bold colors. Here I wanted my coyote to have an dreamy, almost magical feel. He could be stopping to gaze up at the stunning northern lights. Or he could be standing on the fringe of a clearing with the dazzling light shining through the foliage.

This painting, Spectrum Veil as with most of my work, is an expression of my deep appreciation for nature. As well I am constantly in awe of nature and eager to communicate with paint, what I see and feel.

I absolutely love bears and painting them. I love painting them because they are a subject that is perfect for my expressive style and bold colors. In Heavyweights my bears are having fun wrestling and playing in a pond oblivious to anything else going on around them. I wanted the viewer to feel as if they are peaking through the lush foliage; watching quietly as the bears engage.

Heavyweights (named by my son), is an expression of my deep appreciation for nature.

Heavyweights is a beautifully textured oil on gallery canvas painting. The luscious brush strokes and rich colors create a dramatic conversation piece that will light up every space.

Temporary Shelter is created with a distinctly impressionistic flair and bold modern colors.

As I have always been inspired by the master Van Gogh, I wanted this to be reminiscent of that work. As well I wanted the viewer to feel the movement and hear the wind rustling in the meadow. This is my painting of a young fox finding shelter in the tall grass from the fast-approaching night, and storm.

The sides are carefully painted and bring the image around covering the entire canvas. It is wired and ready to display.

This is a painting from childhood memories of delicious summers spent at a Saskatchewan farm. We played all day with the animals and lounged in the tall grass watching the clouds roll by. I was always mesmerized by the beautiful rooster.

The image wraps around the sides with meticulous detail. At Bork's Farm is wired and ready for display.
