Moving Forward/Looking Back: “Moving Forward/ Looking Back” celebrates the journey of Elizabeth Rundquist as artist and brings together her love of color and background as an art therapist.
The meditative process of mixing colors is a common thread that can be seen throughout each piece of the exhibit. “As I associate color with feeling, [I] pick up a brush, lay down some paint, [and] the game begins,” says Rundquist. As one views each piece one can feel the love that Rundquist has for art and the joy emanates from the painting.
Elizabeth Rundquist has been creating art for over forty five years and is an accomplished art Psychotherapist. She received her Master of Arts in Art Therapy from New York University and has had her writings published in the auspices of The International Psychotherapy Institute. Rundquist is married with four children and eight grandchildren.
