A woman in a sun hat balances to take off her shoes at the river. Two small dogs wait patiently for her. Washes of warm orange and red from the sun pair with shady areas of green, blue and black. Quick brushwork accentuates the subject's stance. Based on a photograph that Liz captured on an early spring afternoon.

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.”
