Elizabeth explores the world through her artistic endeavors, and views art as a true expression of the self. She finds her inspiration in everything around her and strives to create beautiful, relatable images, laced with powerful metaphor.

Art has always been the cornerstone that I have built my life around. Speaking through artistic mediums allows me to express feelings, statements and even pose questions to my viewing audience. When I was younger, art was more of a selfish pursuit, something I did for myself. However, as I have matured, I realize that art can be created for others as well. When I create art, I look to inspire hope, bringing light into the darkness that is modern life. Art to me is not just about creating an image. It is a release, a realization, and a story.
