Part of Elizabeth's ongoing series of warm, inviting and gently illuminated birds' nests. Elizabeth says that this nest, which was given to her by a friend, has the lightest, softest fluff that she has ever seen. "Birds weave down spiderwebs into their nests for warmth and comfort," she explains of the glowing, gossamer tufts.

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.
