In Elizabeth’s found image and gouache works she explores relationships, between people, between colors, and the play between both. She searches vintage magazines to find figures that can express the colorful world she imagines. They are transformed to exude energy and strength through the movement and compositions of her painted, layered, colorful shapes. Each piece encapsulates her emotions like a diary of her anxieties, desires, and pleasures and she exposes them to the viewer.
Elizabeth’s work has been exhibited in Mighty Tieton Gallery, Washington, Baton Rouge Gallery, Louisiana, Arena 1 Gallery, California, Modified Arts, Arizona, Melvin Gallery, Florida, Boston Young Contemporaries, Massachusetts, among others. Her work is featured in Index Book’s Cut out for Collage.
