                Elizabeth exhibited with a group of Huntsville area artists known as Pentad for 10 years, which also included her Limberlost host artist, bronze sculptor Brenda Wainman Goulet.  “It is a privilege to be exhibiting with Brenda again.  I have been inspired by, and have had a spiritual connection to the Muskoka environment all of my life as a part-time resident, but now that I am a full time resident of Oxtongue Lake, it is even more meaningful for me to be a participating guest member of the Limberlost tour.”vintage card

In addition to her own photographs, Elizabeth plans to have many of her “vintage” cards for sale, which she has made from 16mm motion picture films taken by her grandmother between 1925 and 1945. The movie film was digitized, then film editing software was used to select individual frames for the images. It is an engaging collection of folks in the North Woods two generations ago! art photograph
