About the Artist

Elizabeth Decker is a contemporary artist based in Austin, Texas. Her signature bold and brightly-colored abstract faces and figures have been compared to jazz music;  with a fresh use of form and color, each line and scribble is spare, as if every line was deliberate,  but totally in the moment. Her vibrant emotional work depicts a story that invites a further conversation.

Decker considers herself an intuitive abstract painter, inspired by the conversations/conflict first within herself, and the need to mediate an accumulation of emotions, thoughts, and ideas, so that she can come to a resolution and communicate that visually. The result is an invitation to a collaborative conversation resulting in connection through story. "Our stories are what connect us as human beings. When we are able to communicate and engage in a conversation, we realize we are not so different after all." Currently, Ms. Decker has been examining the idea of space; allowing space among the chaos, and striving to reach a place of calm, which is reflected in her use of color, lines, and what she likes to refer to as a whimsical sense of humor.
