A composite of photos taken in a pre-professional ballet class in New York. The young dancers put on pointe shoes for the second part of class. Each dancer is focused on their own ritual and preparing themselves for the work ahead. Liz says it is a typical scene in ballet schools everywhere.

Liz is a self-taught artist who is inspired by the graceful movement of the figure. She paints both from her own photographs and from life. One of her favorite subjects, the dancer, exemplifies a celebration of the female form and the artist’s personal love of ballet. Liz’s paintings are emotional and even raw, capturing each subject with active line- and brushwork. She does not assign an intended interpretation or narrative to her paintings; “I think that each viewer brings their own response to my art, and I don't care to 'mess' with their vision and experience.”
