BIO


 

 

Elizabeth is an artist in Spartanburg, South Carolina, specializing in hand cut silhouettes (people and pets), abstract and still-life paintings, and whimsical watercolor illustrations.

A graduate of Presbyterian College with a degree in history and minor in art administration, Elizabeth has been creating from a young age.  Influenced by her passions for 20th century social history, design, calligraphy, texture, and pattern, her work is infused with a sense of the classic while the colors she employs suggest a bright modernity.  She sees art as a way to help create a more beautiful, entertaining and interesting world.
