Seeking a classical tradition, she studied at the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art (LAAFA), Art Center College of Design, and privately with Ryan Wurmser, Aaron Westerberg. Whether working in oils or in charcoal, Elizabeth is interested primarily in how light moves and wraps around objects.

She has won several awards for her work.
