Elizabeth Collard is an award-winning artist  and Watercolor Instructor whose works have been selected for entry into numerous juried fine arts and fine handcraft arts shows.   Collard is a juried signature member of the Delaware Watercolor Society, Baltimore Watercolor Society and Potomac Valley Watercolorists.  She is  President of the Delaware Watercolor Society, and also a member of the Rehoboth Art League, the Art League of Ocean City, the PA. Watercolor Society and the Guild of Silk Painters (U.K.) . 

She works primarily in watercolor, concentrating on compositions, with floral themes, choosing to capture nature's beauty and bring it indoors through her paintings.  She paints deep, vibrant colors while maintaining the natural transparency of the watercolor medium.  Her artworks are beautiful, realistic renderings in which she is able to bring out the fine detail of the subject matter.  Collard works in two distinctly different formats.  Depending on how the spirit moves her, she either paints using staged still life settings which she composes from favorite objects, or she creates a still life tableau totally in her mind’s eye and then paints very detailed settings from her imagination.  In addition to working in watercolor, she also creates original paintings on silk, and on wood surfaces.   Along with her large watercolor paintings, she creates original watercolor jewelry, silk wearing apparel, "Garden Fence" wall hangings, wall murals, floor cloths and painted furniture.   Collard enjoys the challenge of commissions where she has to see clearly and create someone else's vision.
