Elisabeth Cox's Crayon Box
It was a box of 64 Crayola crayons that unlocked Elisabeth's imagination as a child.
Paired with a white tablet of paper, strokes of lemon yellow, lime green and crimson red were the start to a lifelong visual dialogue. Elisabeth soon graduated to colored pencils and mixed media. At Mills College in California, she discovered pottery and oils.
She moved to Maine to be an educator, and the flora and fauna of the New England coastline became interwoven into her art. Her work, including paintings, collages and more, possesses an inherent whimsy, portraying a beauty of emotion in bold colors.
Elisabeth now resides in Richmond, where she continues to pair her vivid creativity with palettes of watercolors. While she enjoys exploring a variety of themes in her work, she loves creating playful images for children and the young at heart.
