Liz is currently attending the University of Central Arkansas pursuing a BFA in Studio art (Emphasis in Sculpture) and will graduate in December of 2018.

Liz is very interested in creating work about memory and our relationships to the unknown. Her recent senior exhibit, Cope, is a fabricated sculpture with digital media 3d mapped and projected onto its surface. The following is her artist statement in relation to that sculpture.

"Cope is based on themes such as trauma, fear and self-resolution; all are common denominators in the human life-cycle. Although the process varies from person to person, Cope is a visual representation of how my brain organizes and processes memories. Similar to a computer with a glitch, there is no specific pattern. Sometimes memories just play out of nowhere, and at times, there can be an overwhelming feeling of tension in my chest. Other days there seems to be absolutely nothing going on. Cope is intended to show that no matter the darkness, this is always a way to survive."
