Elizabeth Reed

Artist’s Statement

I create oil paintings and drawings that interpret color, form, and mark-making to arouse emotional reaction. My inspiration starts from observation — drawing and painting from life and Plein air painting. I want you to be present in my landscapes and know the people in my portraits.

"Art hurts,

art urges voyages,

and it is easier to stay home."
