Liz is inspired by the beauty of the Pacific Northwest and the lush gardens at her organic Shangri-La Farm. She spends most of her time in the dirt and painting in oils on canvas. Her latest works include new floral pastels; forest trees and a series of birds who visit her farm. Perhaps Liz is best known for her bold colors of crimson, gold and umber in her painted sunflowers. “The withering, end of season sunflower inspires and reminds me there is grace and beauty in the aging of all things living,” says Liz. “Art is all around us and through my work, I try to capture the beauty of our world so others may enjoy it.”
Liz is active in the local arts community. She loves to share her work with the public at several summer art festivals and her work is represented in two locations of the Pike Art Gallery, one located at her farm and another location in #UptownCamas, 302 NE Sixth Avenue at the corner of Birch Street and Sixth Avenue. Liz has been juried into Clark County Open Studios Tour each year since 2017. She is the founder of Camas First Friday Art Walk and the Fern Prairie Art Festival. Liz also teaches budding new artists to paint in oils on canvas at her ART FARM instructional studio, located at her farm, 26300 NE Third Street in Camas. In addition to being a life long artist and farmer, Liz is a Master Gardener and beekeeper who loves to entertain family and friends at Shangri-La Farm. She is a member of Society of Washington Artists, Battle Ground Art Alliance, Artisans Guild of Camas and Northwest Oil Painters Guild.
