“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.

The morning light on Whyte Island at Whytecliff Park was a real attraction for me and a delight to paint. The water was a very light celadon green and captured a faint reflection of the island. As the sun gained height in the sky, the foreground beach picked up the warmth of the day. Passage … Read More
