Elizabeth trained at Bristol Art College, where she qualified with a BA (Hons) in graphic design. She later formed her own design company, which gave her the freedom to rediscover her love of art and painting. She first exhibited her paintings in 2007 and has taken part in a number of successful exhibitions in and around the Reading area since then. She is able to work in most media, but happiest when working in oils or watercolours. Much of her work, especially the commissions, is very detailed and accurate which she says is time-consuming but very rewarding. To loosen up and counter-balance this, she also paints loose ink and watercolour wash studies of flowers and animals.
