About Artist - Elizabeth Cereby

I'm an artist living in Canada. My love of nature, especially animals is what fuels my passion for drawing and painting. Being mostly a self taught artist, the closest I came to a formal art education is a correspondence course I took while still in my teens, but nonetheless I found the course to be very helpful in my artistic pursuits.

My interest in drawing and painting started at an early age and continued to grow through the years. I began painting in oils but switched to watercolor in order to avoid the fumes and mess associated with oils. During the time spent finding the right painting medium for me, I took an interest in pen and ink drawing, which continues to be what I feel most confident and comfortable working in.

Recently I began painting with acrylics and am looking forward to making more paintings and gaining skill with this facinating meduim that I'm enjoying very much.

In addition to painting with a brush, I also create art using the computer and find it helpful in the composition and development of my paintings. Some of my computer art can be seen and bought on prints and items such as mugs and mousepads at www.zazzle.com/waterart*
