“Creativity is intelligence having fun” - Albert Einstein
As a third generation Vancouverite, Elizabeth has been drawing and painting for as long as she can remember. Translating her inner vision into outer reality, she has a spiritual connection to her paintings. Having sailed across the Pacific Ocean, hiked the West Coast Trail and skied most of her life, Elizabeth is inspired by the outdoors and typically paints the Canadian landscape. Although Elizabeth works primarily in acrylic, she also brings out the oils and watercolours to fulfill the results she wants to capture. She is an active plein air artist and when not outdoors she works from a studio in her home. A portion of sales is donated to a local charity.

This piece was painted some time ago after a sailing trip to the British Virgin Islands. The winds were terrific for sailing and the sound of the winds blowing the palms was simply lovely and quietly impressive. Uninhabited amazingly pristine tiny islands exist on the landscape in the British Virgin Islands.
