In 2012 Elisabeth received an MA in Fine art from the University of Gloucestershire, specialising in fine art photography. As a conceptual artist she dealt with themes of relationships, loss and absence in her practice.
A couple of years later and Marcel the Shih Tzu came along and she was overwhelmed by this new relationship so started to explore it through the medium of photography.
Friends of hers soon wanted their dogs captured in the same way and she realised she could combine her two passions.
“By stripping away the visual noise of the everyday allows me to capture the nuances and aspects of the dogs personality without the distractions of context, essentially seeing them less as dogs and more of the beings that they are. That is to say, capturing their essence whilst creating timeless fine art portraits of our beloved companions.”
