About the Artist

Elizabeth Mitchell has lived in FLorida since the 8o's and has pursued her art career here. Her work can be seen and purchased at Baisden Gallery in Tampa and at Clay and Paper Gallery in Dunedin. Elizabeth has been painting on silk for nearly a quarter of a century and refers to it as her "happy medium". Elizabeth is now teaching the skills of her gorgeous art to small groups in her home.

Artist's Statement

My art is an expression of myself. If I don't do it it wont be done, then that particular expression of my unique self will not be contributed to my world. I am happy to know this and to give it expression as fully and co-operatively as possible. I am an expression of my world. Reciprocity and Moebius loops delight me.
