A deep pond of colorful koi fish, circling and emerging out of the distance. Part of Elizabeth's recent series of koi inspired by a pond she encountered in San Diego. She says the pool was raised with a window on the side, and it was the first time she saw koi from the side and underneath. "As I painted these colorful fish, I found that I was painting myself," explains Elizabeth. "I wasn't the most colorful or flashy fish. I was the hidden fish, the one you had to look a little harder to see."

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.
