Elizabeth Shupe is an artist who channels fairy tale imagery in an attempt to make sense of the harsh realities around her, she understands that truth is buried in even the most fantastical of visions. Her work references classic illustrations of Brother’s Grimm stories, Symbolist painting, the masterpiece “Ophelia” by John Everett Millais, Victorian kitsch, and feminist deconstructions of the above. She uses a dizzying array of media: painting, drawing, and collage sit comfortably side-by-side with 3d printing technologies and modern materials such as resin, plastic, and “low” media such as beads and fabric paint. She is a graduate of the New York Academy of Art. She has shown in New York, North Carolina, Florida, and Shanghai, China, and has work in personal colllections in New York, Florida, and North Carolina. . Her creative pursuits have led her to an exciting nomadic-by-choice lifestyle, and she invites you to follow her on her artistic journey.
