“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.
No Place Like Home 8 x 10, oil on board
Right in my own backyard, so close to home. Lovely to paint in the shade and observe the filtered sun patterns change momentarily throughout the day!
Air Stream – SOLD 8 x 10, oil on board
I have always loved the look of an Air Stream trailer. Such a classic! This one often parks close to where I often walk and the reflections on its walls are very fun to paint!
Wild West, Ucluelet 24 x 30, acrylic on canvas
An iconic point of view in Ucluelet with the leaning tree on the little islet sitting solidly in the surf.
Lynn Creek 11 x 14, acrylic on canvas
Breathing the freshness of the forest and seeing the abundance of fresh water in Lynn Canyon Headwaters Regional Park leaves me feeling renewed.
West Coast Sea Stack 24 x 30, acrylic on canvas
The sea stacks majestically mark the West Coast of British Columbia.
Chesterman Beach, Tofino-SOLD 16 x 20, acrylic on canvas
The reflections on the incoming tide at Chesterman Beach in Tofino are beyond breathtaking!
Westerly Winds, Ucluelet 12 x 24, acrylic on canvas
It is beautifully powerful sight when the winds are blowing and the surf is pounding on the beaches in Ucluelet.
Stems, Cyclamen 24 x 30, acrylic on canvas
Stems of the leaves, flowers and buds are the theme of this painting. The Cyclamen plant, in a wide variety of beautiful colours, grows well indoors and in temperate climates it thrives outside as well.
Cabin Lake, Cypress Bowl – SOLD 8 x 10, oil on birch board
Cabin Lake is found on Black Mountain in the Cypress Bowl Resort and is accessed only by hiking the 2.5 km trail up to it. It is definitely worth the hit to see this beautiful little lake and in the summer it is refreshing to jump in for a swim before the hike down.
Get in touch, I would like to hear from you.
