Liz Pike

 
 

Liz Pike is a self taught artist. 

Raised on a Brush Prairie dairy farm

as one of 13 children, Liz has an

organic affection for the outdoors and

of nature.  “I am inspired by natural

color.  When I open my eyes, I see

color and texture about the same time

I see image,” says Liz.


Liz’s first introduction to original art

was watching her Uncle Buck work

in oil pastels. Her favorite painting

is “Vase of Flowers” by Renoir. 

She grew up gazing at a reproduction of it in her family’s home, purchased by her mother with blue chip stamps.  Today, it hangs in Liz’s home, continuing to provide inspiration along with several museum prints by her favorite impressionist, Claude Monet.


In 1982, at the age of 22, Liz began to work in oil on canvas.  While living in Honolulu for ten years early in her adult life, Liz spent a lot of time painting en plein air.  Local tropical landscape provided much of the inspiration for her then. Today she continues to be inspired by the beauty of the Pacific Northwest and the lush gardens at her organic farm in Fern Prairie.


Liz is the founder of the Camas First Friday Art Walk, believing that historic downtown Camas could become a haven for artists and art galleries. First Friday Art Walk lives on today in Camas and is one of the strongest retail days of the month for the City’s merchants.


In 2005, Liz opened up the Pike Art Gallery in downtown Camas and operated the gallery for three years.  During that time, Liz created a living room in downtown Camas with Pike Art Gallery attracting hundreds of visitors to the gallery on Friday nights.  “Life has provided much inspiration to me over the years for my artist life,” says Liz.


Liz paints several subjects using oil on canvas including natural landscapes, still life, and historic buildings. She shows her work in several outdoor art festivals and in local galleries.
