I, Elizabeth Blue, am an artist, illustrator and arts educator based in Springfield, Oregon.
I studied Illustration for six years, in Scotland and England and have a BA Degree in Visual Communication: Illustration from the Edinburgh College of Art and an MA Degree in Illustration: Authorial Practice from the University College Falmouth.
I now live in Oregon, where I have been working as a freelance artist and art educator since 2011.
My personal work focuses on life's mysteries, often using fairy tale archetypes to give inner feelings form. I have a keen interest in literature and editorial work and use an intuitive and sophisticated approach to interpreting writing through illustrations.
Email me with any inquiries.
