Elizabeth’s work is inspired by several artists, and she was mentored for over a decade by the painter Ewa Stryjnik. She is also a swimmer and loves to include a figurative element in her art. “I call them liquid landscapes,” Elizabeth says. “They are a kind of visual journal of my life, of real and imagined self-portraits, and studies of my family.”
Underwater world of wonders
Elizabeth’s work is figurative and impressionistic. With her work, she hopes to communicate how joyous a moment in nature can be. “I am also hopeful that it reflects a deep love of the Canadian landscape, of time spent at a lake swimming in summer and skating in winter, and a reverence for the underwater world of wonders,” she adds.
Chuck Close philosophy
Elizabeth loves Chuck Close’s philosophy of art. He says, “Inspiration is for amateurs. The rest of us just get to work.’ She paints almost every day hoping for that ‘timeless awareness’ moment of flow.
“The process is what excites me,” she says. “At the point of signing the work I have already moved on to the next canvas.”
In addition to various visual artists, jazz musicians and songwriters also influence Elizabeth’s work. Currently, Elizabeth Lennie is working on a solo show of lake raft paintings in tandem with some underwater Caribbean ocean snorkelers and divers.
About 10% of her paintings are fully completed. The rest are in various stages of being finished. It’s a process!
