Elizabeth Creixell is an emerging artist based in Sydney, Australia.

Elizabeth's work investigates place and mapping the movement of the landscape through contemporary printmaking. She creates bold impressions of Australian rural and suburban settings whilst on transit. Utilising the combined processes of linocut and collage, she evokes a sense of landscape rather than portray specific scenes. The print-based installations are an extension of this idea. Elizabeth is intrigued by the graphic qualities the landscape offers, which is expressed through line, shape and mark making. Working as a curious observer, Elizabeth aims to gather an enhanced understanding of her surroundings. 

Elizabeth was born in FL, USA in 1997 and moved to Sydney, Australia in 2004. She has recently completed her Master of Fine Art (2020) at the National Art School and obtains her Bachelor of Fine Art (2018) from the same institution. She has since continued exhibiting throughout Sydney, greater NSW and online. She was a semi finalist for the Tony White Memorial Art Prize (2020), was a finalist for the Lloyd Reese Memorial Youth Art Award (2019) and was the recipient of the Sydney Olympic Park Residency Award (2018).
