Elizabeth received her BFA in painting alongside Anthropology from the University of Colorado in 2006. Working primarily in oils, watercolor and pencil, her work is both colorful and bright, while often employing minimalism and negative space. She uses realistically depicted figures and heavy symbolism, placed in imagined spaces to express the contrast and disconnect between the life we imagined we would have vs. the life that is in front of us. She paints about the sad things, but with bright colors as a way to make light of it all, and reframe our experiences.
