Elizabeth is often asked what inspires her to paint. Her answer is: "Beauty. And beauty comes in many forms: in color perspective, light and proportion. And nothing is more beautiful than the work of God. The Psalmist must have been thinking of a sunset when he wrote: 'The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands."" (Psalm 19:1)
Elizabeth lives outside Chicago with her husband Congressman Peter Roskam and their four children. Elizabeth has been a member of the Portrait Society of America and the DuPage Art League.
