Elizabeth is an artist of Mexican, Irish and Filipino descent and 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 color. 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 glory 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. She studied fine arts at Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas. She later married into a military family – moving often once more – and eventually returned to San Antonio, Texas where she now resides. Elizabeth has exhibited her work in New York, Florida, Arizona and Seoul, South Korea. She currently shows her work in Texas, New Mexico and Colorado.
