Throughout her career, Elizabeth has discovered what invigorates, captivates and entertains her is challenge. Therefore, while continuing to pursue her love of landscape, she has added still life and figurative work to her subject matter, and painting directly from life has become her predominate approach of choice. There are nuances in painting from life that cannot be addressed when painting from photographs, and she finds this pushes her to see at a more sophisticated level, keeping the process continually stimulating, engaging and rewarding. While being primarily self taught, she attributes much of her success to the valuable influence of the prominent artists with whom she has studied, combining their guidance with her dedication to developing a style of her own. She has exhibited in numerous solo, group and juried exhibitions, has garnered international recognition and awards, and is in demand as a workshop instructor. Elizabeth is a member of the Oil Painters of America, and a signature member of the Society of Canadian Artists, the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour, and the Federation of Canadian Artists.
