Representational oil painter Elizabeth Kinahan depicts the flora and fauna of the American west.
Through passionately rendered images, she exposes the soul of each subject, and reflected within it, the soul of mankind.
The work thereby creates an implied narrative, with animal as storyteller, and where man is at once hero and villain.
Elizabeth continues to capture the local fauna within the four-corners region. These paintings capture a heightened attention to detail, and at the same time a feeling of roundedness expressed through opaque solid backgrounds and bold colors.
