Introduction I am a visual artist living and working in Ireland. This is a log of my Art / Life. Like maps of days, I make my way through work, translating visually the landscape around me and within me, and the borders where they meet. I make drawings, prints, sculptures and show here my works in progress along side the greatest work, which is my motherhood. My wee girl is my "wonder" assistant. I have recently been asked to illustrate a number of children's books, this in itself has been a wonderful new door opening, I feel as if I am making drawings like dreams from childhood. Thanks so much for stopping here, and do feel free free to contact me elizabetharthouse@gmail.com for more information about the work. x E
