Visual Art – New York - NYC, NY

Liz is a lifelong resident of Yonkers, NY and has always embraced her love for everything creative. She majored in Creative Writing with a minor in Visual Arts as an undergrad, and most recently graduated with her MS in Art Therapy/Counseling in 2018. Her work has been featured in Astoria Art Weekend (2014), Greenpoint Gallery (2015), and Yonkers Arts Weekend (2016, 2018). Working as an art therapist, Liz uses painting as a form of self-care and to combat the vicarious trauma that she is at times exposed to as a result of working with clients. The main drive for all of her current work is exploration and experimentation with color and texture, and she is often inspired by the music that is playing while she works. ...more
