About Artist

Elisabeth spent her early years in Barcelona where she dabbled in drawing and painting  from an early age. As an adult Elisabeth continued developing  her art with watercolours at the Queensland Watercolour Society. She soon found that this didn’t define her as an artist and furthered her formal training at Brisbane Institute  Art and Bremer TAFE focusing in painting in oils and acrylics.

Elisabeth likes to use her work in aid of community support exhibiting for Life Line, Mitchelton Community Centre, Qld Police Services, St Steven’s Catholic Gift Shop, View Club and Brisbane Ethnic and Multicultural Arts Centre [BEMAC].
