Meticulously torn bits of hand-painted papers, delicately put together, form the exceptionally vibrant collages created by Artist Elizabeth St. Hilaire. Richard Colvin, executive director of the Lake Eustis Museum of Art says, “Elizabeth St. Hilaire’s artworks have a fresh quality that belies the way they are constructed.” Born and raised in New England, Elizabeth has lived in Central Florida for the past 19 years. She holds a B.F.A. in Advertising Design from Syracuse University, which prepared her for a dual identity as both graphic designer and fine artist, she can switch gears at the drop of a hat! St. Hilaire is a signature member of the National Collage Society and criss-crosses the country several times a year to take her paper tidbits on the road. Teaching and sharing her collage technique through an intense 3-day Paper Paintings Workshop has become a passion.
