Elizabeth is currently completing her MLitt in Theology and the Arts at the University of St Andrews. Her work is heavily informed by the experience of growing up with exposure to different faith communities: Evangelical Christianity, Roman Catholicism, and Judaism. Wading through questions of identity as a young adult, she found that the experience of art was a beneficial place for dialogue and unity. This idea was further solidified in her work as a preschool teacher, where she saw firsthand the natural impulses to play and create that inform human experience and communication. She is interested in art as a space for building community and shared understanding, and brings her experience as an educator and background as an art historian to this work.
