Meet an Artopian: Elizabeth E. George

Artopian_ElizabethGeorgeWhen did you realize your love for creating art?
My love for photography began when I was 9 years old. My mother allowed me to use her camera to take pictures at a zoo in Budapest, Hungary. I was hooked right then and there. I love capturing candid moments revealing the true essence of my subjects. It’s an honor when someone tells me my photos do so.

Who or what is your biggest inspiration as an artist?
Because there is a soft spot in my heart for nature, I would have to say Ansel Adams!

What piece of your own artwork are you most proud of?
The photo that I am most proud of is actually the one I submitted this year, “My Lady’s Garden.” It is of a beautiful red rose taken right after a storm. I used a very cheap, cheap camera. Just goes to show, a good photograph does not always need expensive equipment, but rather a good eye.

What is something that most people do not know about you?
Now, if I revealed that, everyone would know and then I wouldn’t have any hidden attributes anymore. hahaha

Why did you donate to Artopia?
Knowledge is Power and when you Know Better you DO BETTER. The funds raised at this amazing event help BBC serve our community through educating our community about HIV/AIDS. I have had a couple friends pass from this horrible disease many years ago when we still didn’t understand it. I hope my small contribution can help BBC continue to bring awareness as well as assist those who are afflicted.
