Liz Phelps is originally from a rural farming community in Illinois. Growing up on her grandparents’ farm, she explored nature and grew a connection to the earth and the animals that dwell on it. Over the years, Liz experimented with art and creativity in various formats including writing, ceramics, watercolor painting, acrylic and oil painting, gardening, and cooking.
Oil paints have become her medium of choice for their vibrancy, fluidity, forgiveness, and light changing qualities. Liz draws much of her inspiration from nature, especially the ocean with ever-changing colors, textures, movements, and light reflection.
