Artist Elizabeth Berry
Elizabeth Berry has worn a wide variety of hats: resort ownership, social work, service as a Chaplain, meditations upon philosophy. poetry; an artist.
Elizabeth has followed a path first discovered among childhood dreams. Her mediums of expression were the tools of paper, computer, cameras and light.Her exposure to social issues and care of unfortunate souls finds expression amongst her works. She is an artist who has tended to the sick and dying.
Other influences include artist Peter Hebner. This fine artisan from Ontario, Canada has brought mediums of portrait painting with rich pastels, fine pencil work and acrylics. Her interest with photography brought her to study first with Monto Zucker and other seminars of direction and expression.
Elizabeth reveals a bit of her underlying creative poetic principles, saying “…Many layers and days go into producing completed work I come to treasure. It’s tapestry. It constantly reminds me that I am also a tapestry. Who I am is cumulative result of many generations, and people that came before me genetically and experientially. I love that. This poem was written for something else but seems to fit: Thoughts, words, images on a page, like actors on the stage, are not wholly mine…. Out of others ashes…. Created…. Recycled, dressed, and aided before stated…. On a page stage created…”
She continues “…Composite art is enriching as it is hard to explain. Many elements woven together than painted sometimes start with something I have drawn or created. Sometimes parts of the world I can often very far away and I get to use a section of an image from a part of the world I can never hope to visit. This makes for a communal and universal aspect, even if it is just one tiny addition.”
Elizabeth’s works are created from what Elizabeth is: a unique perspective.
She is proudly represented as one of the featured artists displayed to the public at Feathered Nest; Belleview, Florida.
