Elizabeth’s paintings are Impressionistic using a full spectrum of color. Her art is about the color and light as it portrays the subject. Most of her inspiration is from nature.
Elizabeth has studied with a number of award winning artists who have all contributed to the development of her style. Most recently she studied with Ty Hodanish, a well known Impressionistic artist in Bucks County who studied with the The Cape Cod School of Art. She has also studied the methods of Kees van Aalst and Rolina van Vliet both from the Netherlands as well as with abstract artist, Emily Thompson from Bucks County. She first started with Dot Bunn, whose style is in likeness to the Renaissance Masters, 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 her own style. 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, Chairwoman of the Scholarship Committee and a member of the Philadelphia Sketch Club. Elizabeth facilitates the Art Expression Day of “Empower U” program for teenage girls at the Central Bucks Family YMCA.
