Born in Puerto Rico, Lizzy Javier discovered her love of painting at an early age. She pursued her artistic endeavors by studying with a local artist, acclaimed painter, Bart Mayol, who studied at The Corcoran in Washington D.C.
After moving to the U.S., Lizzy continued to take classes at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA, and to refine her painting, finding inspiration in nature, travel, and life in general. Her work is focused on bold colors, pattern, depth and dimension, and striking imagery.
“To me, paintings are portals, filled with ideas and emotions”, says Lizzy, explaining her artistic philosophy. “Paint to please yourself. Get messy. Use your imagination and give yourself the freedom of self-expression without fear of judgment.”
Lizzy, has displayed her artwork at Kyo Gallery in Alexandria; Franklin Park Arts Center in Purceville, VA; Artspace in Herndon and Gallery Underground in Arlington, VA. Her paintings has been featured in the Loudoun Arts website, Artist Spotlight. Her art was recently displayed at three Loudoun Public Libraries. She is a member of the Friends of Leesburg Public Arts.
You will find Lizzy at her easel most afternoons. Based on her recent African photo safari, she is currently working on a series of paintings featuring the women of the Maasai tribe in native costume and the African landscape. Her recent trips to New Zealand and Puerto Rico will inspire paintings of natural beauty.
