Elizabeth Banker’s paintings explore the overlapping realms of the personal and collective human experience through symbolic motifs.
Elizabeth grew up in the small mountain town of Crested Butte, Colorado, which lies 9,000 feet above sea level in the Rocky Mountains. In 2008, she discovered purpose and passion within painting. This lead her to pursue a bachelors degree in Visual Art and Yoga at Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado. After graduating in 2012, Elizabeth moved to Europe to study at the Vienna Academy of Visionary Art in Vienna, Austria. There she undertook intensive studies learning the skills and methods of a variety of renaissance and contemporary painters.
Elizabeth’s works are inspired by her life experiences and her fascination with nature and human consciousness. Being raised in the mountains and holding a deep love for the mysteries of the cosmos continues to greatly influence her work. Merging the practices of yoga, meditation, and self inquiry cultivate the visions of interconnectedness within the spiritual and physical planes presented in her paintings.
