When I'm painting, spirit and intuition guide while my hands mindfully follow. My intuitive mixed-media process incorporates numerous layers, often including hand-textured reliefs, hand-made papers, personal drawings, acrylic paint, acrylic ink, calligraphic markings, preserved organic material and translucent glazes.

Elizabeth Chapman is a life-long artist. One of her most joyous childhood memories is of standing at the easel in kindergarten painting Ferris wheels! From that humble beginning she has progressed to exhibiting her art in national and international exhibitions where they have garnered numerous awards. Her works are in private and corporate collections throughout the United States, Canada, France, Mexico and New Zealand.

She holds a Master of Science in Art Education from Florida International University, and completed her studies with “Academic Excellence” at Cambridge University in England. She also earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Southeast Missouri State University and attended the foundations program at the Kansas City Art Institute.
