With a strong background in music, Elizabeth explores new ways to combine both music and visual art. Principal Flute in the Radio Telefís Éireann Concert Orchestra for over twenty-five years, an MA in Music Therapy from Limerick University and a Higher National Diploma in Fine Art merge to give her porcelain work an enriched flavour.
Her creations rapidly came to the attention of the public when she won both a Sculpture in Context Award in the Botanic Gardens and a Gallery Award in 2011. Her work has been exhibited at our galleries successfully for many years. She has exhibited at the RHA annual exhibition. In May 2011 Hearing Silence, the short documentary about Elizabeth, was screened in the Mermaid Arts Centre.
For Elizabeth the attraction to translucent porcelain is the way in which the inside space of a form can be captured with light, emphasising what does not exist physically but rather what is contained within the outside shape of the form. By leaving the material unglazed, she allows the beauty of the material to speak for itself.
