Highlighting ROAM Gallery Artist
Elizabeth Cox - Painter
Loving life, loving art, and always grateful.
Elizabeth realized at a young age that creating art was her passion; her calling. Graduating with a degree in Graphic Design, she commenced working at an advertising agency in Toronto. Elizabeth was then offered an opportunity to travel across Canada and throughout the United States with fellow artists. This adventure provided her with invaluable artistic insights and enriching life experiences. Upon her return to Canada she started up a successful illustration studio in Ontario, Canada.
Elizabeth displayed her artistic diversity by creating illustrations and design for businesses such as Pet Smart as well as fine art commissions for collectors such as NHL hockey players.
Several years later, on a meditation retreat, an important event occurred in Elizabeth’s life. She reconnected with her inner child. Simultaneously while in New York City, Elizabeth was introduced to Instinctualism; a movement which began in New York and is characterized by joyous and colorful artwork. The two events profoundly shifted her artistic focus forever. Elizabeth now paints in thick oils with an impressionistic vigor hoping to rouse the inner child in her viewer. Her work helps you feel the joy in the vivid colors and subjects.
Elizabeth's work has been exhibited in Toronto, Ontario and Vancouver, and Victoria, British Columbia. Her work has also been featured in a number of magazines. Most recently Elizabeth's work has been featured in Art Quench Magazine, Best International Creatives, edition and 'Women in Art 278' magazine.
Elizabeth’s themes are those that resonate with her inner child. Subjects that make her smile or inspire a sense of awe often bring her into the studio for 8 to 15 hour days. These subjects can be anywhere and anything; from driving down a road and seeing a breathtaking field of sunflowers to the way light sparkles on a koi pond. But whatever the subject, Elizabeth’s works are easily recognized by her distinct style, and her use of vibrant colours and generous textures.
