“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.
After a climb through a snowy mountain trail the forest opened up and we took a moment to take in the view.
As the sun filters through the landscape a graceful tree with snow laden branches claims a spot in the forest.
I wasn’t exactly real close to this bear who appeared in my yard but we did share some serious eye contact!
Anywhere on the big west coast is where I breathe in and feel the renewal of my soul. I love the trees have claimed their space on this particular sea stack!
This local black bear looks a little concerned because he is experiencing the first snow of the season and now needs to find shelter to hunker down for the winter.
Painted from a photo I took of one of the many very cute tiny cabins on Hollyburn Mountain. Most of the little cabins were built in the 1920’s and 1930’s and are allowed to remain on the mountain as long as they are well maintained.
A view from the North Shore of the amazing cloud formations in the sky above Point Grey that are reflecting across the water.
A lone tree sits in the perfect place as the sun hits its snow covered boughs.
An iconic landmark in Garibaldi Provincial Park. It is snow capped in the winter but a great hike in the summer. It can be seen from the Sea to Sky Highway.
Get in touch, I would like to hear from you.
