featuring the artwork of Naples artist Elizabeth Smith
Having spent her early years in the woods and along the waters of Iowa, Elizabeth developed a deep love for nature that is reflected in her artwork, whether it be her quick plein-air sketches, intensive watercolor paintings or unique assemblages.
A Naples resident for over 35 years, Elizabeth's passion for Florida's native plants shines through the pages of her sketchbooks and throughout her online nature journal. Although primarily self-taught, she returned to school later in life and received her BA with Honors in Art at Florida Gulf Coast University, following with post graduate classes in Education.
Since 2013 Elizabeth has offered workshops and taught classes at the Naples Botanical Gardens and Florida Native Plant Society. She especially enjoys exploring the natural world with children and teens, leading journaling, drawing and watercolor pencil classes, helping to nurture an appreciation for beauty that surrounds them.
