Biography:

A native of southern California, Elizabeth has exhibited at the Festival of Arts in Laguna Beach since 2010.  Her work is both nationally and internationally collected.

A figurative oil painter trained in the classical realist tradition, she graduated from Laguna College of Art and Design in 2009 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Drawing and Painting.  Elizabeth has also studied with Marc Trujillo, Sergio Sanchez, John Brosio, Jason Dowd, and master painter Lance Richlin.  

 

Artist Statement:

 

       My Mythica portrait series will have 80 paintings when it is completed.  Modernizing ancient Greek myths, I plan to explore how our digital age relates to archetypal stories that have been passed down through the millennia.

I often turn to humor to address serious or controversial subjects in my artwork.  With my still life paintings of toys I am examining how symbols are interpreted by individuals and through the lens of cultural dogma.   My intention is not to promote a particular concept or ideal, but to inspire analysis and contemplation in my viewers.
