Working as an abstract expressionist artist, I believe that the process of creating is much like the flow of life. For me the first mark, undercoating or brushstroke in a painting is often the hardest. From these first beginnings a dialogue is opened up in which I as the artist am compelled to find and follow the flow of the painting in a highly intuitive manner. Color and movement play a major role in my work, as do line and texture. There is much experimentation, exploring, discoveries of new avenues of expression and at best a child like playfulness. When all the elements come together in unison, the completion of the painting emerges bringing with it a quality of expression that has a life of it's own and is unique.
"It brings me much joy just to be the brush in the Master Painter's hand and to realize that His creations are made to bring great joy to all. My paintings are a form of song, dance and praise in response to the beauty of life." -Elizabeth
