Local Artist

Elizabeth Juliver is an artist. Her work is modern and thought provoking. I photographed her most recent collection the other day. Here are a few of my favorite pieces.

Elizabeth used newspaper articles from May 2, 2011, the day Osama Bin Laden was killed for this piece. It symbolizes nature rising above the destruction of man.

Twisted Moon
Elizabeth manipulated folded newspaper to create movement through the painting as if floating through the night sky.

Orange Rise
A knife was dragged through many layers of paint in this piece to obtain the dramatic sensations of the African landscape.

The signature piece of the collection. Elizabeth used empowering newspaper headlines and phrases with a double image of a woman floating above. You are meant to feel the stripping and freeing of herself through these words.

If you would like a private viewing of Elizabeth's collection or are interested in purchasing one of her pieces, you can contact her via email at
