Liz Moran, Raleigh Member Since January 2011 Artist Statement Elizabeth is a self-taught artist living in Raleigh, North Carolina. She is originally from New Jersey and moved to get away from the cold winters and crowded lifestyle. Once she moved to North Carolina, leaving the comfort of family, friends and a 9-5 job, she was pushed to becoming an artist. She has always considered herself a creative person and her new home has given her the time and inspiration to paint. Elizabeth’s inspiration comes from nature and landscapes - she loves the textures and colors that are found naturally in the world. Her art is made by many layers of paint and textures on canvas. Many times one finished painting become the inspiration for another work. She is always experimenting with new techniques and mediums therefore her work has matured without losing her style and voice.
"I believe that as an artist you need to do and create what comes naturally. In my case I paint what I want, feel or am inspired by, not what I think people are going to want."
