She has already had three solo shows in the last six months, at Barndoor Bakery and Skidhompha Library in Damariscotta, and at the Bremen Library.  In addition, she was honored over the last four years, to be accepted in several shows a year at Manhattan Arts in NYC, an International, Internet Art Gallery, curated by the world renowned Renee Phillips, Curator and Art Critic, where  two years ago she was awarded first prize of a year’s free membership, complete with extensive featuring of her work and website.

Elizabeth uses vibrant color,  play of light against dark, and intricate detail, to portray her subject matter, often layering her watercolor paint in a unique fashion.  She will paint anything that catches her eye and elicits an emotional response.  Her goal is to take something quite ordinary, and through her paintings, raise it to the extraordinary, so that viewers will be moved to see how amazing much of their world really can be.
