Artist's Bio

After years of doing art and studying art, Elizabeth "Liz" came to realize her passion for mosaic especially after traveling to Greece and Italy and seeing examples of its ancient practice.  She creates both 3-d and 2-d mosaics in a modern style sometimes incorporating traditional Roman patterns.  She has been a mosaicist for the last eight years.  She is self-taught.

Liz's employment of 36 years was as a self-employed court reporter with her own deposition agency in Oceanside.   She graduated summa cum laude from the University of Alabama with a B.S. in administrative sciences. 

Liz spends most of her day doing mosaic art and researching the subjects for her upcoming projects.  She balances her life with daily bike riding the Oceanside Strand, walking her springer spaniel, socializing with neighbors and friends, enjoying life, and an occasional road trip to visit family.

In March of 2017 she was accepted into the La Jolla Art Association after successfully being juried into one of their open shows with three mosaic wall pieces.

Artist's Statement

I think lots of people have art talent. They just don't know it. I am so fortunate to have the time and ability to do art at this time in my life so I can really explore my creative side. I consider it a blessing.
