Don't Fence Me In
Inspired by the area she lives in, Lisbeth has no lack of subjects for her paintings. She goes on “photo safaris” looking for the perfectly posed animal in perfectly placed light. She paints from these photos, as most animals are notoriously bad at standing still. She strives to capture not only the likeness of the animal, but a little of their personality too.

About the Artist
Liz has loved drawing since she first picked up a crayon. As a child, she took oil painting classes from a neighbor in her home town of Decatur, Illinois, and went on to major in fine art at the University of Colorado.
Her career in marketing and communications for the architectural industry offered creative opportunities in writing and graphic design but left no time for drawing and painting. When she retired and moved to Soldiers Grove from Chicago in 2002, Liz picked up a brush for the first time in 35 years.
