Elizabeth Heller

Artist Statement:

I am a Door County painter and photographer who is continuously seduced by the amazing, lush woodlands, the rolling farmlands and the varied coastline of this beautiful Wisconsin peninsula.  When I am out photographing, I know right away if a particular photo is good for a painting or if it will be a great photo.
