About Me

Artist. Creator. Old Soul. 

Hi! My name is Elizabeth Karlson.

I am a contemporary abstract and multi-passionate artist always searching for inspiration for my latest artwork. I primarily work in alcohol ink on yupo. 

Whether it be climbing a mountain in Arizona, out in the middle of a lake in Ontario, Canada or my own inner voice, I find inspiration everywhere I am. There are infinite amount of colors and I love finding new combinations that you wouldn’t normally think of and combinations inspired by nature.


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 of color, texture and 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 unique set of emotions for the viewer. Each person will feel and see something different.

I begin every piece by staring at my surface and channeling my inspiration and inner thoughts, feeling and searching for what colors and mood I want to create. I strive for a blended and soft effect, like dancing silk, full of little ripples and billowing details.
