Originally from Venezuela, Elizabeth Perez Diner is a self-taught artist who pursued her passion for art after studying mass communications at the Central University of Venezuela. After moving to the United States in 2001, she attended courses at Dundean Studios and the Visual Art Center in NJ. Even though she works with many different mediums, she prefers painting murals. Her love for murals stemmed from her exposure to Mexican muralism, the Renaissance, Cubism, and Surrealism in high school. The active energy from the surface of a wall draws this artist to that type of canvas. Her biggest inspiration is her two sons, Gabriel and Benjamin, who motivate her to create and her husband Bruce, who supports her in her endeavors. She currently studies at DuCret Art School in Plainfield, NJ and resides in Morristown, NJ.
