Santa Fe, NM
Liz received her MFA in sculpture at Northern Illinois University. As far back as she can remember, her artistic mind intertwined with her everyday life. She spent 30 years in Chicago as a working artist before moving to her beloved Santa Fe in 1997.
“If I had to choose one word to describe my artwork it would be ‘animism’, one of man’s oldest beliefs that in every object a spirit or soul exists. I want to infuse my sculptures with a quietness about them and a spirit within them so they create their own energy and have the ability to communicate. When I am sculpting, I feel the sculpture take part in its own creation. I listen and we continue to work together.
“As an artist I feel grateful to see the world beyond its norm. My life as an artist is fulfilling and I will continue to create sculptures in bronze, clay, and wood as long as I can, for every day is a new day with new beginnings.”
