Current Bio

Elizabeth Koval Maffeo is a freelance artist who, for over 25 years, has been capturing the tranquil spirituality
of nature in her work. Using a watercolor/ gouache technique, each of her paintings radiates from a central, multifaceted theme with vivid color and sublime texture.

“In my art, I embrace and entwine my Japanese heritage with my love for
photography and nature by producing images that capture the essence of
cultural mystique and symbolism through extremely realistic detail.”

Elizabeth’s art is conceived in a serial format with an in-depth thematic focus.
Her diverse love for symbolism, fantasy and dream imagery pervades each series.

And thus, a new chapter in this artist’s life has unfolded….

From 1998-2015, Elizabeth had the opportunity to create art in the 3-D realm
while working in Museum fabrication. During that time, Elizabeth further developed
and strengthened her artistic skills by creating models and natural history dioramas.

Currently, Elizabeth is painting, working on commissioned sculptures
and volunteering at local museums.
