My name is Elizabeth Selby and I am from southern Alabama and currently work and reside in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I have been painting most of my life and am primarily self-taught. In the recent past I have begun painting with oil colors, after taking classes taught by painter Brett Andrus. My paintings are typically large scale works of portraiture inspired by dreams, idealism, and the playfulness of girlhood. Painting partly for aesthetic reasons, partly for emotional ties to the past; remembering a moment either had or dreamt of, or maybe read in a book. Utilizing elements from my childhood that don’t ask questions, rather just bring feelings, my wor

for the whole bio, check out my site: www.jenniferbalkan.net :).
My paintings are emotionally-based psychological narratives where the details lie in planes of color. I choose to exaggerate color, in a sense break up a color field into its constituent colors, directing the viewer to particular areas by applying juicy bits of heavily saturated color. I strive to capture emotional states more than anything else, purposefully laying strokes down to create the illusion of an outer physical topography that houses an inner one of the soul. Though it is a cerebral concept that motivates me, the process of painting is superior to all else.

Often inspired by photography found on the internet, she strikes a cord with the strangers she depicts; her figures connecting with the viewer through a combination of confidence and vulnerability.
