Elizabeth considers herself a self-taught artist with her works leaning toward abstract expressionism and surrealism. Elizabeth believes that art heals psychologically, mentally, spiritually, and physically. She likes experimenting on her pieces which are all absolutely authentic as she also coins herself as an Intuitive Artist. From her cascade of exquisite artworks, one can immerse himself into a dreamy realm. Surreal paintings that can take you to different worlds. Almost all of her paintings were done at the spur of the moment as if her hand has a mind of its own and guides the brushstrokes to create masterpieces. She strongly believes that “Art shows us not just perfection but to discover imperfections and find the collateral beauty behind it.” Elizabeth uses recycled materials to give texture and life to her works. She also wants her art pieces to be socially relevant like her “Earth Theme” and “Climate Change” Series of works. Through her art, she wants to inspire others to protect the Earth and help reverse the effects of climate change. Her paintings were already featured in both local and international art exhibitions such as the Delphian Art Gallery in London, Luan Emotional Museum in Mexico City, Mexico, Luna Galleria Philippines, “Transmission”International Art Exhibition, Art Show Philippines, and “Mujeres del Artes 4” All Women Art Exhibition on display at LeBlanc Hotel and Resort in her city, Antipolo City, Philippines organized by ARTipolo Group.
