" Art that soothes the mind and soul"


About Me

Artist. Creator. Old Soul. 

Hi! My name is Elizabeth Karlson.

I am a contemporary abstract and multi-passionate artist. 

I am deeply influenced by nature and the world around me. I love to travel and be in the beautiful outdoors. Climbing mountains in Alberta, fishing in Ontario, hiking in Arizona, or relaxing at home in Northern Illinois. I find inspiration everywhere.

Spreading happiness, tranquility and positivity one painting at a time. 

Artist Statement

With the chaos that surrounds our everyday lives, I like to hope that my artwork provides an escape, if only for a moment. Deeply influenced by nature and emotions, my paintings are full color, texture and a calming energy. A release of my own personal thoughts, emotions and inspirations. Each piece is completely unique. Colorful, moody, calm, or vibrant, the colors of each painting interact to create an ethereal scene and evoke a set unique set of emotions for the viewer. Each person will feel, and see something different.


I begin every piece by channeling my inspiration and inner thoughts, feeling and searching for what colors and mood I want to create. I like to sketch before hand to test out color schemes and compositions. Then I paint and let the inks flow.
