About the artist

Elizabeth M. Willey is a Saint Louis artist and educator with an MFA in Painting from Fontbonne University, and a BFA in Painting from Webster University. She currently exhibits in the Saint Louis region and teaches drawing at the Saint Louis Artists’ Guild.

History, classical fairy tales, folk tales and complex textile patterns infuse her mixed media encaustics with narratives that are both familiar and obscure. She employs luminous natural beeswax to seal each stratum of her images, created with collage, transfer, print-making, drawing, and painting techniques using graphite, ink, oil and and colored pencils, combining both contemporary and ancient media to create each piece.
