“I breathe LIFE into my paintings with vibrancy, devotion and passion – they in turn, most surely give my LIFE meaning and existence.” – Elizabeth Elequin
Elizabeth Elequin is an artist of Scottish, Mexican, Irish and Filipino descent. Her work is as bold and vibrant as the cultures that have filled her life. She creates her work on a grand scale – large paintings of splendid blossoms and botanicals, interwoven with organic patterns that pay tribute to the glory of nature… all culminating in a kaleidoscope of COLORS. But do not confuse her portrayal of flowers, a well-known and well-visited subject-matter, as mundane and expected. Elizabeth’s blooms fill a room with all their colorful grandeur and brilliance. They are whimsical, breath-taking and delicious … they make you LOVE them.
Elizabeth grew up in a military family, moving often. Her father retired in San Antonio, Texas, where she remained for many years. Elizabeth chose to study commercial arts at Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas. However, after she attended her first painting class, she understood her passion lay in the fine arts. She would later marry a U.S. Air Force officer, again moving often but always painting regardless of where they lived. Eventually, she would return to San Antonio, Texas, where she now resides. Elizabeth has exhibited her art in California, New York, Florida and Arizona. She is currently showing her work in Texas, New Mexico and Colorado.
