Elisabeth Lawrence

I sometimes think there is a bit of nomad in me as I’ve changed my address so many times. I’ve lived in Europe as well as diverse areas of Australia including the Simpson Desert and Kakadu National Park. For now I’ve settled in another beautiful place of Australia, the Sunshine Coast hinterland.
My studio overlooks the iconic Glass House Mountains, giving me a connection to endless sky and land which I love. The vastness encourages my thoughts and ideas. In my current work I use this powerful environment and play with it by contradicting both realistic and non-realistic themes.
My work develops in series which reflect my changing thoughts and stories as I grow up. Each new storyline in my work comes from a variety of different sources. Often they come from thoughts and feelings, reflections on my own life journey, as well as little objects which I’ve collected. I compose these in an antithetical style which becomes a narrative.

I consider myself a story teller; a fabulist.
