Visual Artist

 

My visual language allows me to communicate personal narratives, expressions and tableaus. My formal training in the visual arts has been extensive and diverse, and inspires me to convey thoughts and feelings through the use of varied styles and materials. I am a formalist who intuitively invents assemblages incorporating a multitude of various mediums. This process allows the act of construction to grow as it comes into its own. The art is rooted in intimate, cultural, emotional, and spiritual imagery. Throughout my work is an adoration of the female figure and a devotion to sacred images as well as those that are secular. 

As part of activities during the April Student Scholarship Week at Monmouth University, students who applied were selected to present Hawk Talks in the Ted Talk format about research or creative projects they were working on in their classes. Two students in the Introduction to Hispanic Literature class were selected to present a Hawk Talk entitled: “La literatura y el arte para un mundo mejor” (Literature and the Arts for a Better World).

In minute 5:33, there is discussion over Elizabeth Jacobsen's "Lock Her Up" work.


Elisabeth Jacobsen discusses her use of found objects in her art and how she uses her work to tell a narrative. Her belief that art should drive change challenges her to continue to evolve as an artist. You can view her work in the upcoming Studio 3807 Collection!
