During the second session of Liz’s digital photography course, she led the entire class on a field-trip to her studio. Sans brown bag lunches or haggard parental chaperones, we meandered unwittingly into her alluring space and—faster than the speed of…instant jello—we were transported to a vibrant world of color and light.
Her space is more than a studio. It is a prism reflecting a wide and varied spectrum of jewel-toned hues. A kaleidoscope of translucent colors glowed everywhere, from the tall, white walls to the candy-colored countertops. Just like kids in a bonbon shop, the class stood and ogled at the visual sensation of an incandescent display of Jell-O.
Yes, you read that correctly. Jell-O. But our visual enlightenment did not stop there.
With a graceful flick of a switch, Liz activated a string of LED lights and the transformation was complete. The field trip switched on, too…into an illuminating adventure through familiar cityscapes but as never seen before. Liz mesmerized the class with a start-to-finish demonstration of her unique process, creating in real-time her enchanting and gelatinous worlds. Do not pass by the chance to see her work in person. It is guaranteed to be…illuminating.
