Elizabeth’s paintings bridge the continuum from representational to abstract creating her unique style, Abstract Realism. Her art is less about the subject than the emotions the subject evinces. Much of her inspiration from nature. What she feels she puts on canvas.
Elizabeth has studied with a number of award winning artists who have all contributed to her development of her own style. Most recently she has studied with abstract artist, Emily Thompson who shared her techniques. She first started with Dot Bunn, an impressionist painter, getting a solid foundation learning color palette to mechanics of design in classical oil painting techniques. Then she studied Plein Air practicing principles of illusionistic painting utilizing the wipe-out method and Linear Perspective with Patrick Connors, instructor at Studio Incamminati and Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. It is through experimentation of painting in different styles that Elizabeth has developed. She has a special gift of bringing luminous color into her art bringing forth emotions of joy, peace, and harmony which brings distinctiveness to her art work.
She is a member of the New Hope Art League and Chairman of the Scholarship Committee, the Philadelphia Sketch Club, and Arts and Cultural Council of Bucks County. Elizabeth facilitates the Art Expression Day of “Empowering U” program for teenage girls at the Central Bucks Family YMCA.
