Elizabeth Rhoads Read earned her BA in Art and Political Science from Cornell College in Mount Vernon, Iowa. She is now a full-time artist working in the Cedar Rapids area.
About her art:
"Elizabeth's work involves varying texture and illusive lights
interspersed with minute details, concentrating on the forcefulness of
dark areas and the contrast between spaces. These pieces exude
recesses, secret hiding places that pull one in for shelter. Her
philosophy is to immerse herself in textures and tones to express the
intensity of emotions. She is drawn towards simple materials to
create her visions, including paper, used fabric and abject items."
