Born in New Zealand, Elizabeth landed in America in the early 80’s, where she made a living using her art in Key West, then Tampa.
Roddy Reed ( Ceramic Pinch Pots) was a mentor who encouraged Elizabeth to show her Silk Paintings on the Art Festival Circuit which she did until 2004, winning awards regularly at shows in Florida – e.g. Mt Dora and Dunedin, in the days when to name the town was to name the show. She was accepted into excellent Northern shows such as Virginia Beach Sidewalk Art Festival, Reston Virginia Art festival and into the prestigious Art Expositions hosted by the American Arts Council.
Since 1990, Elizabeth has been part of the stable of artists at Baisden Gallery – www.baisdengallery.com – in Tampa; and of Clay and Paper Gallery www.claypaper.com in Dunedin, Fl since 2002. Her work can be seen at these locations.
