  • Kirkwood named October Artist of the Month

    Like most artists, Elizabeth Kirkwood appreciates the beauty to be found in nature, but she brings a different eye to her interpretations.

    “I consider myself an ‘outsider’ artist,” she said. “I am basically self-taught so I approach creating art from no formal perspective. I turn to nature and humans as my inspiration, but I do love to look for the imperfections to be found there.”
