About Elizabeth Ficken

Elizabeth is a Canberra-based artist, working in Sculpture. She creates work with a variety of material that relates to the conceived idea. The Environment plays a vital role in Elizabeth’s making process. Observing how living systems adapt, co-exist and survive manifests an awareness to connect more greatly with nature. Today, the rapid movement of life and placement has disconnected, and urban development is on the rise. This has placed a stress on society, but also an understanding of the unique Environment we live in, which is detrimental to our well-being.

Elizabeth has had numerous exhibitions in Canberra and interstate.
