Elizabeth Hope has two main focuses within her art – portraiture and bold, conceptual pieces created from the overflow of emotions and convictions. Her portraits and figure paintings range from pen and ink drawings on paper to large oil paintings on canvas, depending on the project. The more conceptual pieces are mostly oil on canvas, which allows her to translate the intensity of emotion appropriate for each piece, both with thicker layers of paint and also bolder, more striking colors. With both focuses the goal is to capture people and moments that reveal more of Elizabeth’s heart and the hearts of those who commission the art.
Elizabeth believes that sharing our hearts – being vulnerable – can be empowering, and it’s that authenticity that helps us to then connect with and strengthen each other. Her art strives to be a visual representation of those bonds. She creates original works, murals, and commissions.
