Elizabeth Allen's lifelong interest in the arts has culminated in a passion for acrylic paint on canvas. The first time she tried it, she knew this was the medium for her and she has never looked back.
Inspired by artists as diverse as Turner and Rothko, Elizabeth applies paint in layers which are separated by thin coats of acrylic medium to create depth and luminosity. Paint is poured, dripped, splattered, applied with brush or rag - "anything is possible," Elizabeth says, "and that is what makes painting so exciting."
"If I am able to achieve a sense of light and motion in a painting, I consider it to be a successful piece, and most often these are the pieces that find their way into the hearts and homes of others."
Originally from Alberta, Elizabeth now lives and paints on the west coast of British Columbia where the beauty of nature is a constant inspiration. Her work can be found in international collections and in several West Coast galleries.
