Hey, I’m Liz! I’m a 21 Year old Illustration Major at KCAD. I’ve always wanted to go to art school, and now I’m living my dream. However, said dream is pretty expensive and I’m hoping to help pay off my student loans by making some money doing what I love through RB.

    This is beautiful work Elizabeth. This is the one I would love to see in Painters Academics! Good luck on RB!

  • Thank you very much! I just looked through your rose paintings and they’re very impressive! I actually just recently got into watercolor (and painting in general, I’ve always been more into drawing) but I really enjoyed doing this painting and it helped get rid of my fear of watercolor’s unpredictably.
