About the Artist
Elizabeth Edwards Gorek
Elizabeth Gorek has been living in Northern California" since 1996 having grown up in Hong Kong and Canada. She comes from a family of artists." I consider myself a life long student of fine art. I practice either in my barn or in my new art space at the historic 'Sam the Butcher' in Ross.
"I love how light touches darkness.... I'm drawn to the unguarded moment, stripped of artifice, a caught thought trapped in the body that betrays an inner life. I feel the surrender of a tulip, the mood of the ocean and the storm at the center of a rose."
Elizabeth's paintings range from colorful abstracts to representational figurative work.
