Elizabeth was raised in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah. She is best known for her classically beautiful floral Still Life but also enjoys painting portraits and capturing the soul of a person. As a child, her Grandmothers would help her identify various wildflowers at their cabin above Oakley, UT, thus creating a love of flowers. “I still have the book where I pressed and categorized wildflowers that my paternal Grandmother helped me with.” She is co-owner of Bella Muse Gallery in Ogden, UT, and owns Bella Muse Productions and Inspired to Paint, where she films and produces instructional painting videos and offers painting scholarships to help inspire other artists along their journey.
There is something about flowers that just makes my heart sing, and although I paint a variety of subjects, flowers are what give me the most joy. I have over 90 roses, many peonies, lilies, sunflowers, and many other flowers are just a step away from my 600 sq. ft. studio where I paint. I am drawn to dramatic lighting, color, and emotion. I strongly believe that art heals and that each painting is painted with the energy to heal someone. This is what I strive for in my paintings.

Winning the Purchase Award has such enormous significance for me, it’s every artist’s dream to be in a museum and my work, Lee’s Ferry Landing, will be at the Tucson Desert Art Museum for as long as I live. I’m so thankful to the American Women Artists for that opportunity.”
