Liz started her serious art training at the Los Angeles Art Center School at age 17. She studied advertising design and illustration. She enjoyed the experience, but always wished to do more unstructured creative pieces. During the 70’s she was a busy mother and wife, with an interior decorating business. She did attend the University of Houston and studied under John Alexander and Gael Stack, something she treasures to this day, as they inspired her to find her own voice. She continued her art education always and studied under many fine teachers. In the 80’s she started showing and selling her work primarily in the Rockport, Texas area. She did many water paintings and anything relating to the ocean. Her work at this time in her career was exclusively oil. She moved to the Woodlands in 2001 and loves the artist opportunities she finds there. She is a member of theWoodlands art league, as well as a member of the leagues in Tomball and Conroe. She won many ribbons for her oils, but 4 years ago she was introduced to water media and never looked back. She joined the Watercolor Society of Houston and gained recognition for her work, after a while people were asking her to teach her methods. She has expanded her media into collage, and her workshops are known for their experimental nature and light hearted approach to art. The main focus of her work now is figurative work.
“I work in water media as it enables me to draw and paint quickly. My work is contemporary in feeling, and the addition of collage materials reflect our world today. I am not interested in copying the past.” - Liz
