Artist. Interactive Designer. Magic Maker.
As soon as Elizabeth’s parents met, they knew that their genes would produce a daughter who not only would have hair the color of love but the brain and talent of an artist. Born on a rainy October night in Havre de Grace, Maryland, Elizabeth Irene Tolson was brought into the world with gifted determination. Her parents, both being military, exposed her to new ideas at a young age. This allowed Elizabeth to explore more during her development. Her leadership ability sprouts from being the oldest of four girls, and her chaotic home life.
Elizabeth’s passion for art started at a young age while living in the United States and Europe. Her parents, both Army officers, moved frequently and exposed her to a broad array of new ideas. This allowed Elizabeth to explore the world in many different ways and develop her eclectic sense. She was perpetually exposed to new and exciting ideas that were rooted in the classics. The integration of modern technology created a revolution within the art community, and was not lost on the young artist. Elizabeth was constantly inspired to build and create, and encouraged to do so by her family and mentors. Although her early focus was on tactile three-dimensional art, soon after entering college her interest evolved and she moved towards the electronic arts. With this broadened perspective, Elizabeth strives to capture the world as she sees it. Her vision continues to earn her great acclaim.
Graduating from Alfred University in May 2010, Elizabeth is currently living in New York City as she continues creating and stimulating others with her provocative work. Always refining her art, she continues to impress and build her portfolio. Committed to her educational development, Elizabeth recently graduated with a MFA in Design and Technology from Parsons the New School for Design.
