"Cinqo" by Elizabeth Wiltshire.
Elizabeth Wiltshire, who is studying visual arts and media studies at the University of Western Ontario, enjoys working in many different media, including oils, acrylics, watercolours, and charcoal. She is currently focusing on digital photography, graphic and web design. Recently she has been experimenting with graphite portraits, which have been commissioned and sold to numerous local collectors.
"Cinqo", and excellent example of Elizabeth's love of mixed media, was orginally designed using digital photography and Adobe Illustrator. She then took the computer-aided design and painted it on a canvas, giving her style a distinctively modern feel.
Elizabeth's art is even more intriguing due to the fact that she struggles with colour blindness and, although she can see colour, she has difficulty in differentiating shades. For this reason she always uses bright colours and experiments with non-traditional colour palettes.
Elizabeth is excited to start her career in advertising and graphic design upon graduation next spring. To see more of her work, including web pages, drawings, painting, and digital photography, contact her at
