Elizabeth Ranger was born in Ottawa in 1984. She has a BFA from Concordia University, Montreal (2010), with a minor in Comparative Religious Studies. She’s lived in Vancouver, Kelowna, Montreal, Vietnam, and currently works and lives in Halifax.
She uses watercolor, gouache, colored pencil, and digital to imagine invisible connections as fluid imagery, drawing subtle inspiration from various sources of religious iconography.
She’s also become recently interested in exploring human physicality and how our bodies are changing constantly and can be many things at once, meat, ritual, poem, sensation, pattern, tool, home, strange landscape. She intends to push anatomical accuracy while divorcing herself more from form.
