AS IS | Elizabeth Langreiter

Artist

Based in Sydney, Australia


We were lucky to interview fascinating Elizabeth Langreiter on her extraordinary art journey, nature of the inspiration, and some tips for those, who are just at the beginning of the art exploration.





A: Please, tell us a bit more about yourself. What brought you into art?


E: I have an unusual story to tell. I started painting in 2008 after a freak head injury. Prior to the injury, I had no interest in art whatsoever, and then overnight I turned into a passionate artist who could not stop thinking about art. I was playing high-level competition doubles tennis and got hit in the back of my head from my partner's serve. It caused swelling in my head that didn’t go away and required medical assessment. All was ok but I had this sudden desire to start painting and so I did. I just kept experimenting and painting until I came up with my unique style which I am delighted to say is capturing the hearts of collectors all over the world.



A: What inspires you the most?


E: I am inspired by happy times and good memories, particularly at the beach.



A: Do you have any specific rituals while working(creating)?


E: I always put on my very paint-spattered apron and then I am ready to create. I always have music playing and a cup of tea to sip.



A: What would you recommend to someone who's new to art (rather artist or just an admirer), what to begin with?


E: To find art that you love.



A: Your top 3 favorite adjectives related to art?


E: Fun, Whimsical, and Textural



A: The best angle to look at art is from ..?


E: Your heart.





A: The Perfect phrase to start any conversation about art is:..?


E: What sort of art would you like in your home.



A: Must-read books to talk about art (or do we even need them)?


E: I have not ever read an art book so I say maybe we don’t need them.



A: If you could change one thing in the art world - what would it be?


E: Not much. I am very grateful to be an artist in this day and age and never in a million years when I created my first painting did I think I would be connecting with people all over the world on a regular basis today.



A: Please, share your favorite quote (not necessarily related to art)


E: “Art is the only way to run away without leaving home”
