Elizabeth trained at Bristol Art College, where she qualified with a BA (Hons) in graphic design. At the end of her course, she moved back to Berkshire and for many years was employed as a book designer for a major publishing company. She later formed her own design company, which gave her the freedom to rediscover her love of art and painting. She first exhibited her paintings in 2007 and has taken part in a number of successful exhibitions in and around the Reading area since then. She is a member of the Reading Guild of Artists, the Society of Floral Painters, the Wokingham Arts Group, and the Woodley and Earley Arts Group.

She is able to work in most media, but happiest when working in oils or watercolours. Much of her work, especially the commissions, is very detailed and accurate which she says is time-consuming but very rewarding. To loosen up and counter-balance this, she also paints loose ink and watercolour wash studies of flowers and animals. She has also taken part in life drawing classes on a regular basis for many years.
