"Sometimes I surprise myself.  I am always looking for some mysterious in-between place where ideas and images come together together to show me a new exciting path to follow." - Elizabeth Sandvig

Frequently inspired by dreams and forays of the imagination, and imbued with the celebratory spirit the artist absorbed as a young girl living in Mexico, Elizabeth’s work is bold, sometimes humorous, and often delivered in color that is explosive and joyous….

She has learned to bring her flawless sense of composition together with a kind of surrender, working with purpose while leaving the way clear for the unanticipated spark of imagination, the moment of surprise that moves a painting beyond a well-constructed assembly of marks into the realm of the visceral, for painter and viewer alike.
