EBN Art Studio GIVEAWAY ends 7/3

I hope everyone had a great Father's Day weekend!
Okay, I know this isn't jewelry, but isn't jewelry just like art?  Cheers to my fine arts background!   I bring you EBN Art Studio and the artist in the studio, Elizabeth.

Elizabeth, tell us about you!

Warm Abstract Oil Painting
I am a 29-year-old abstract painter and teacher.  On Etsy, I sell my abstract paintings and prints in my shop. I enjoy challenging myself by representing objects from life in different and abstract ways.  

About a year ago, a former co-worker started an artist cooperative in the area and asked me to be a part of it. I was so excited and got busy building my body of work! While working on my pieces for the gallery, a few friends told me about Etsy. Around the end of July 2010, I started posting some prints for sale on my newly created Etsy shop, EBN Art Studio.
Mini Conversation Heart Painting
I find my inspiration for my work EVERYWHERE. Every time I visit a museum or show, I come back ready to work! Other times, the inspiration just seems to hit me from out of nowhere. For example, my husband was flipping through channels one day, and we stumbled upon a travel show. At one point, they were showing the freight moving in and out of the port of that particular city. I couldn't believe how bright and colorful the containers looked from above! This beautiful view of freight encouraged me to find more aerial shots of these sea containers from various cities and use the images as inspiration for a new series of paintings. Is it odd that I was more fascinated by the freight than the beauty of the city?

Camera Case Print
Right now, I’m happy with the piece that I just finished: “Beyond Abstraction: Freight No. 2, NYC.”  This is the second in my freight series, and I am planning on continuing and conquering new ports!

Thanks, Elizabeth!
