Creating Art, Creating Meaning

Artist Statement

Creating my paintings has become a spiritual practice, firmly grounded in the quiet reflections of the world around me. Silence is the incubator for my intuitive paintings; as I start sweeping water-suspended pigment onto the surface, I allow the painting to guide me through the process of mark making. Some of these paintings take mere days to finish whereas others may take years to complete. Without planning and merely trusting in the process, they always guide me along their specific and unique path of construction.  With a deeper goal of bringing beauty to our world, my process is one that is deeply personal and driven by feeling. The final piece always weaves together a dream-like story that speaks to a viewer on a much deeper, elemental level.

John made a great impression on her with his artistic talent, passion for art and nature, and instilling in her the belief that she could make a living doing her art. She went on to study Studio Art at Hamilton College in New York State. Here she discovered ceramics, figure drawing and more Painting. Liz fell in love with free form ceramics which began fostering her love of Abstract thinking.
