Artist Elizabeth Rickert grew up along the marshes of Maryland's Eastern Shore and has a deep love for this particular landscape. "No matter where I have lived in the US, I find marshes with new elements," says Elizabeth. "The marshes on the Eastern Shore are flat, whereas in New England they include the purple plant loosestrife. In the southwest, I have found marshes with hills and unusual birds." In this particular piece, she captures a quiet afternoon with clouds slowly passing overhead.

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.
