Elizabeth is a first time children's author and very talented illustrator. We will be launching her first book, Orange Kitty and the Mouse Parade, in winter 2022. Watch this space for more on her feisty feline's upcoming adventures.

Elizabeth currently lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia. After spending the last twenty years working with seniors, creating programs and day-to-day activities that utilized art, music, and dance, she decided to retire early to give herself the opportunity to work on projects that have been on the back burner for far too long. Over the last decades she has taken many workshops through community colleges, the University of British Columbia, as well as Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in Vancouver where she was accepted in to their fine arts program, almost completing her first year there before life sent her in another direction. Many years later life once again set her adrift. A move from BC to Nova Scotia was a way to re-invent herself and become the person she has dreamed of being since her earliest memories. Workshops offered by the Writers Federation of Nova Scotia (WFNS) and the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) helped her continue her artist journey. Along with writing and illustrating, Elizabeth loves gardening, walks by the ocean, the wind, and cold cozy sweater weather. Her illustrations utilize pen and ink, colored ink, watercolor, and acrylic as well as digital art.
