"When I saw these Victorian baby shoes at a friend's house, I knew I needed to paint them," says artist Elizabeth Rickert. "They were so old and detailed. Looking at the beautiful buttons and how delicate they are, I imagined who wore them." Elizabeth has been collecting bird feathers for years and incorporated one to accent the graceful quality of these little shoes.

Elizabeth Rickert

Santa Fe, New Mexico

Growing up along the picturesque marshes of Maryland's Eastern Shore, artist Elizabeth Rickert developed a lifelong interest in capturing the harmony and beauty in nature. She seeks out new subject matter with travel, developing different working methods for each new series. Her ethereal birds' nests are painted from life while her glowing flax plant paintings come together from lots of reference photographs and detailed drawings. Elizabeth started her art career as a sculptor, which deeply influences the way she approaches forms and the effects of light. "Every subject in my paintings has a dimensional aspect," explains Elizabeth, "each containing a depth which you can just crawl into and get lost." In her free time, Elizabeth finds peace and inspiration in both nature and cooking. Her artwork has been showcased in The Boston Globe and American Art Collector magazines. Elizabeth graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Towson University in Maryland.
