Elizabeth (formerly painted under the name of Pruitt) was raised in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah. As a child, her Grandmother’s would help her identify various wild flowers at their cabin above Oakley, Utah. This is where her love of flowers began. “I still have the book where I pressed and categorized wild flowers that my paternal Grandmother helped me with.” She began painting in her early 20′s but soon children became her priority and her love of painting was an occasional hobby. As the children grew, so did her desire to expand on her art. She now enjoys the freedom to devote full time to her art. Her work is in private collections throughout the United States and in the Ella Dunnegan Museum in Bolivar, MO.
