Elis­a­beth trav­elled of­ten with her fam­ily as a child, and de­vel­oped a fond­ness for his­tory and an ap­pre­ci­a­tion of dif­fer­ent cul­tures. Add to this a love of film, lit­er­a­ture and all things Dis­ney, and you have the key in­spi­ra­tions be­hind the artist’s work.

One of our 2012 Ris­ing Stars com­pe­ti­tion win­ners, Elis­a­beth has gone on to il­lus­trate a string of chil­dren’s books for es­teemed pub­lish­ers such as Henry Holt, Scholas­tic, and Si­mon & Schus­ter. Oc­to­ber will see the artist up sticks and leave New York, mov­ing to a new home in western Mas­sachusetts.

Imag­ineFX crit “What I like about Elis­a­beth’s art is how she man­ages, even in her client work, to put her own stamp on things. Her choices of colour and light­ing tie her art to­gether in a very sub­tle but sat­is­fy­ing way. “Gary Evans, Staff Writer

1 The Mon­ster Real m

Wa­ter­colour, matte medium, gouache, 9.5x14.5in “This is a book cover for The Mon­ster Realm by Nara Duffie, a young au­thor. I also did the in­te­rior il­lus­tra­tions with pen­cil, and a map with black ink and dig­i­tal colour­ing.” 2 The First Night

Wa­ter­colour, coloured pen­cil, matte medium, gouache, 12.5x17.5in “The sto­ries from One Thou­sand and One Nights are ripe for the imag­i­na­tion. This is Scheherazade and the Sul­tan dur­ing their first night to­gether, as she’s telling her first story.”
