Elisabeth has been an artist her whole life. She loves painting and making jewelry.
When the time allows, she also likes to sew toys and accessories from unique fabrics.
All her creations are inspired by nature. From bugs and birds, to seed pods and the shapes of leaves, Elisabeth finds inspiration everywhere she goes.
“Creativity takes courage”
– Henri Matisse

Her latest paintings are mostly of animals that she encounters on her trail runs in local forests.
