ABOUT THE ARTIST
Elizabeth, also known as Alysathena throughout the art world, is an eclectic mixed media artist. Although she has a definitive style, she has a love for virtually every art medium she has tried and has not found one medium that she prefers over another. Within as much, her gallery and archives are full of an eclectic mix, containing everything from pyrography and kirigami to oil painting and sculpting. Elizabeth's works are inspired only by her dreams and the beauty that she is surrounded by daily.
Elizabeth's earliest influences were Salvador Dali and Boris Vallejo. Although she appreciates realism and has done many realism pieces, her style leans more towards fantasy surrealism with many fae and fauna characters.
Elizabeth attended Art Instructional Schools as well as taking art classes throughout her studies.
In 2014, Elizabeth was asked to illustrate her first children's book. Since then, she has illustrated 21 children's stories and has created 4 book covers, with several more soon to be released.
The first children's book was a catapult that essentially launched Elizabeth into an industry she had never even considered previously. In 2015, a global publishing house asked Elizabeth to join them as their chief illustrator. By 2016, she was the C.O.O. When the publishing company’s focus shifted towards the amazing Graphic novel/Comic Books genre, Elizabeth began illustrating for it as well as creating graphics & typography. In 2018, the company opted to move strictly to the Comic genre and Elizabeth was entrusted ownership of the children's publishing company, the founder citing he knew it was in more than capable hands. In thus Petite Scribe was born. Elizabeth was also asked to continue on with Nightfall Comics as a graphic arts/typographer and consultant as well.
Elizabeth has also begun illustrating her own manuscripts in her spare time and looks forward to releasing her own children's stories in the near future.
