Elisabeth Gross-Marks


When I was 11 years old , I decided to become an artist. I have been painting ever since.

During the last 10 years I did abstract paintings in oil and acrylics. A year ago I started to do collages. I discovered all kinds of wonderful papers. I cut them, tore them, painted on them and used them for the pictures. Then I went to a fabric store and found all these interesting materials in different textures and colors. I am excited about the movements of the folds and the light on the fabrics.

Whatever I am working on, the bright colors are what attracts me. I have an inner picture like a kaleidoscope of bright colors that I am chasing after, seeking order for the abundance of possibilities or allowing myself to create exuberance and excitement. It is a never-ending process.
