“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 beautiful home, now known as the “Lodge”, was designed and built by very talented friends who have great attention to detail! It was such fun to be a part of a special surprise painting for a special person and I had such fun painting it!!
A lone tree stands strong and proud on a small little islet at Brady’s Beach in Bamfield, BC. The vegetation that survives on the west coast sea stacks alway impresses me with its tenaciousness!

Located in Bamfield BC is Brady’s Beach and I am told that it is one of the most photographed beaches on west coast. There are several sea stacks at Brady’s Beach, which provides wonderful choice views for an artist.
Incinerator Rock is an ideal little west coast islet that got its name during WWII as a place to burn military garbage. The location of Incinerator Rock serves as a natural separation between the Estowista First Nations reserve and Long Beach, Tofino.
A wonderful little King Charles Spaniel whose owner is a good friend of mine. A delight to paint!
A favourite beach of mine. As very small creek meanders across the beach on its way to the ocean and kids can often be seen having a fun time changing the creek’s course. This painting looks west, capturing the last light of the day.
In West Bamfield is a special beach called Brady’s Beach. It is named after Percy Brady who was a Coast Guard coxswain in the 1920’s. Percy and his wife Maud were long time residents who homesteaded near the beach. I was fortunate to have visited Brady’s Beach and sketched and took photos of the beautiful … Read More
On the Wild Pacific Trail, in Ucluelet, is Amphitrite Point where a view of the Broken Group of Islands can be seen. The foreground tree is a beautifully shaped and somewhat typically stunted coniferous tree. I walked the trail this year, did some sketches and took lots of photos. This painting is one of those … Read More
