Elizabeth Keller is a transplant from Cape Cod, Massachusetts who moved to Maui several years ago. She is now a Haiku artist who loves the light, climate and colors of the island. The many sweeping vistas that characterize Maui inspire her unique panoramas that often include ocean, pineapple fields, sweeping descents and a lot of detail. She also discovers subjects to paint from riding her bike up sections of Haleakala, and all around Maui including towards Kaupo, West Maui and Hana. She has developed an ongoing series of what she calls "road paintings" that are smaller watercolors of beautiful curves and expanses of the many local rural roads. Elizabeth likes to paint using quirky formats and whimsical subjects; and she enjoys doing commissions for people of property, landscape, objects and favorite views.
She went to Massachusetts College of Art, Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture and received a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Pennsylvania. Included in many corporate and private collections, on Maui her work has been selected for ArtMaui, the Hui No'eau Annual Juried Exhibition (three years in a row with an Award of Recognition and purchase by the State Foundation on Culture and Arts), Malama Wao Akua at Viewpoints Gallery and the Art of Trash.
