    Meet the Artist

    Liz is a printmaker, sculptor, painter and a teacher. She is best known for her traditional etchings on copper plates, photo plate etchings, and silkscreen prints that are often printed on non-traditional materials, including wood, metal, and cardboard. Her imagery springs from the unconscious mind and brings to mind ideas about the earthly and the divine. Located in Boston’s bustling Back Bay, Liz’s studio has 3 etching presses, litho press and a complete silkscreen shop. It is a collaborative, lively space where several professional printmakers work together, and she describes the atmosphere as one of exchange and support. She clearly thrives on the cultural and creative exchange that art makes possible.

    Explore Boston

    Unbelievably walkable for such a big city, Boston is best explored on foot. From tracing the iconic Freedom Trail to idling time in Boston Common (where both Martin Luther King Jr. and Pope John Paul II gave speeches) to wandering the historic brick-lined streets, you can spend all day walking this city. And the stereotype is true—there’s history on every corner, where some of the most iconic moments in American history happened. To get a taste of American culture and heritage, the historic sites—typically in colonial buildings on cobblestone streets—are the perfect place to start.
