Liz LaGarde's Profile

About

Hello!

My name is Liz; I am a self- and school-taught artist who finds her pleasure in color and creation. I began crafting as a child, I have fond memories of creating colored plastic forms with white glue and markers. As I grew up I decided that art school was the best avenue to foster that sense of play, and I attended the Rhode Island School of Design. After college I spent eleven years continuing to learn about art and arts administration at The Art League in Alexandria, VA. Now I am focused solely on Benchmark Paperie! I love working with paper and adhesive, but lots of materials catch my eye. I rejoice in the act of collecting objects, and enjoy playing with paint, paper, glue, and many other things I ferret away in my studio. Sometimes these materials coalesce into a finished piece of artwork, sometimes they merely provide a new perspective from which to begin again…
