Elizabeth Duncan Meyer's work is influenced by abstract expressionism based on landscape and the human figure. She uses many prophetic forms in sculpture, wood and stone.

Elizabeth writes:

"I have always been interested in the spiritual in art, using biblical figures and dreams. I am now involved in a series of etchings based on music. I have exhibited in churches, given paintings (i.e. Servite Priory in Fulham), and made a wooden crucifix for a Benedictine Monastery. I would be very interested to do a commission for Stations of the Cross in ceramic sculpture. The Madonna and Child comes into a lot of my sculpture."
Having studied at the Central School of Art, she moved to Paris to learn print-making at the Ecole des Beaux Arts and at the studios of William Hayter and Henri Goetz. Although a colourist, with a natural tendency towards abstraction and simplification, her work remains subtle and at times mystical, interwoven with images which reflect her passions, as, for example, the spirituality she finds through exploring the deep human relationships of mother and child.
