FEATURED ARTIST for 2018: ELIZABETH STEVENS
I am driven to paint when I see the beauty and the uniqueness of the human face, light falling across form defining its color and texture, the intricacies of design in the world God created and in hearing Him speak through ever-changing nature around us.
I continue to be a student striving to grow through expression in paint and canvas. I also learned from earlier experimental works in clay, wood, metal, and found objects.
