"This painting was inspired by Venus eclipsing the sun on June 5, 2012. But it is also the warm light of the sun illuminating and enhancing the life-blood and love of Venus. The sun, a star, and Venus, a planet, are also archetypal energies."
- Elizabeth Belstraz

"Art-making is my best friend and my spiritual practice."
Elizabeth Belstraz is a lifelong artist and graduate of The School of The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Art has especially become powerful practice during difficult times and she uses variety of processes and materials to play with textures and colors that speak of different realities.
"Surviving challenges, including those in the areas of health and housing, has led me on a transformational journey through the arts. I love using diverse materials to make unseen social and spiritual realities visible!"
Elizabeth’s focus on the act of creative process leads her to different approaches for every piece. Her art methodology is inspired by various materials, a concept, an emotion or a request for thematic work associated with art shows and it involves careful planning and/or intuitive processes. Elizabeth works with liquid watercolors, inks, acrylic paints, pastels, wax, paper, used materials, pigments and minerals to reflect inner psychological workings, spiritual concepts, emotions and feelings, illustrate beauty of nature, or commemorate cosmic and life events.
"I like to add the pigments and minerals to the surface because to me, the shimmery surface evokes the etheric-spiritual aspect of art and life.”
Elizabeth is excited to sell her work through ArtLifting.
