ELIZABETH SULLIVAN

Welcome to my little piece of the internet!

 

Walking along the beach, my feet scuffling through the shallow water; the cool breeze on a sunny day; the stirring scents of gardenia, jasmine and daphne evoke strong memories of my mother; the meditative and therapeutic practice of stitching with thread and yarn; a beautifully patterned fabric rug; a pretty dress; historical buildings; walking in the mountains.   All of these things and more trigger my emotions and feelings and are translated into paintings, predominantly through an intuitive process that is constantly evolving.

I see shapes, lines and colours in everything and these elements are important components in my artwork weaving into symbols, patterns and motifs that have become part of my visual language.   

I enjoy the juxtaposition of loose and expressive versus structured and geometric and also the tactility of incorporating stitching and collage elements which provide satisfying depth and texture.
