Elizabeth Beronich Solomon comes from a technical theatre background, working in major regional theaters throughout the country for 25 years. She brings those technical skills to her work in making unusual one-of-a-kind sculptural books.

Elizabeth takes inspiration from her insatiable interest in science, science fiction, and alternate

histories/worlds/realities. Most of her books are visually based, preferring that the observer bring his/her own story/perception to the work, thereby creating a new interpretation, based upon the relationship created by the individual’s interaction with the artist via the work. She hopes these books draw the observer into the various worlds she has created.
