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.

Deep in the shadows of the river canyon a shaft of light finds its way through. The single stream of light grows bigger when it hits a small bit of river and hits a few rocks that then reflect into the water.
McIntyre Bluff can be seen from highway 97 and is located between Okanagan Falls and Oliver in British Columbia. There is a fairly well traveled hike that goes to the top of the bluff offering a panoramic view of the valley and the path of the Okangan River.
