  “I’ve always seen myself as a very versatile artist, with a foundation in landscape painting…but as time passed, and I grew as a person, spiritually and artistically- I discovered that my artistic fervor encompassed elements of surrealism, abstract expressionism, atmospheric exploration and dream like transitions.  I could not imagine a world without art…I see art as a healing force for the Universe and the life that inhabits it.  Art is and always has been a friend to me- it is comforting, it is my lover and my mother…art is the reason I place my feet on the floor each and every morning.  Art is the driving force in my soul, and the reason I draw breath…without it, I would simply wither and blow away.”   - Liz Smith
