Media

Elisabeth combines acrylics with crayons and pencils for abstract or landscape-inspired art. She likes acrylics as it facilitates the painting of successive layers in order to create both transparency and translucent density.

She loves creating one-of-a-kind fabric toys and jewellery.  Her jewellery creations are inspired by various objects such as seed pods of interesting shape, and gemstones. Fabrics and colors are another source of inspiration.

Elisabeth has traveled extensively through Europe, North America and North Africa and moved to Canada in 2007. She now lives in Ottawa.

She is a member of ARTEAST, of OAA (Ottawa Art Association), and will participate 2017 in the Orleans Art Studio Tour (OAST).
