Liz Whaley is an American artist whose style is greatly influenced by her background in dance. As a ballerina Whaley learned how to portray deep emotions through expression and movement, a gift she now brings to her paintings. Her pieces possess an ethereal quality with a poise that reflects her experience as a dancer. Music and movement remain her greatest inspiration as Whaley uses acrylic paint and evocative brushstrokes to create artworks with an entrancing energy.
"Applying paint to canvas is a dance, the movement of brushstrokes in perfect harmony; the performance is exhilarating and extraordinary. The incredible silent expression of telling a story through movement and emotion captivates an audience in a moment." - Liz W
