Elizabeth Sauder is always plotting a creative adventure.
Wanting to paint where the horizon is visible in all directions, Elizabeth hopped a train to Nebraska. She’d never been there before; she knew no one there. She just felt it was something she needed to do. A total change of scenery and inspiration, the antithesis of the Shenandoah Valley.
She headed to Great Britain where she sought a place for creative inspiration. She chose Cornwall, where she struggled to find her muse, but then it happened: a whole new style and a whole new feel. Amazing.
Elizabeth as a carny? Not expected, but the inspiration hit. She traveled with carnivals around Southwest Virginia. Camping where they camp and spending time capturing their sense of place.
