Elizabeth Isles

Elizabeth Isles is an avid abstract watercolor painter. She grew up in a seaside hamlet along the coast of Nova Scotia, and her art is strongly influenced by nature and her surroundings. She enjoys capturing the essence of all things beautiful or unique. She typically paints her subject with a nod to realism, but infuses them with abstract elements: just impressions of shape, color, texture, and mood as part of the subject or the surroundings. Painting is a spiritual experience for her and as a result communing with the elements gives her a sense of balance and well-being. Having happy childhood memories of morning walks along the coast, she especially enjoys painting birds and water.
