Gallery of my Personal Art

Teresa Palmer of VCU has expanded my repertoire to include the ancient art of encaustics.  I have fallen in love with this media and have shared my excitement with many of my colleagues at several VAEA workshops and conferences.  This medium is amazing!  The 5 recent works you see below will be on view at the August Show at Downing-Gross.

mothers little helper you promise it wont hurt she was asking for it loose skin i cant believe she wore white

I have discovered a luminescence in powdered metals and liquin wax, I love it!  It gives a ghostly appearance to the leaves and allows them to become whispers of the trees memories of the spring time and the bursting forth of the trees leaves.

I have discovered that I love all mediums!  I am the happiest when I am creating something whether it is an idea, a painting, a sculpture, jewelry, or a print.  I hope you enjoy this gallery…

  1. Elizabeth,

    I really love the variety and strength of the many materials showcased. – PE

  2. Love the slab pot-and “Red Stream” Use of color and form are stirring in a way that slips between the cracks of logical understanding… Keep up the good work!

  3. If I were a student in your art class, I would be an eager learner. As a present Art Teacher, your talent and skills are very well mastered. Kudos! – B Quander
