Elizabeth studied fine art at The School of Visual Arts in Manhattan before attending the Prosopon School of Iconology where she studied traditional Russian Orthodox iconography. She moved to Denver to finish her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design, graduating as valedictorian of her class.

Elizabeth works with Catholic publishers and institutions, creating commissioned pieces. She gives talks on the theological aspects and material processes of writing a traditional icon. Elizabeth also creates privately commissioned icons, paintings, and drawings. 

“As an artist I believe it is of the utmost importance to deliver my very best - the highest quality of work and materials, and passion in everything I complete. I do this work to add beauty to the Church and to peoples’ homes, and to elevate our minds to things above.  I get lost in my work, but I pray that you find your way by contemplating the images I present. May they inspire your prayer time, cultivate silence in your heart, and enrich your homes and churches.”
