Elizabeth Romhild’s Journey as an Artist At the age of 26, she began painting realistic portraits, later moving on to seascapes and landscapes. Romhild's artwork has travelled through many phases on a continuous road of self-development and discovery. Gradually her art became bolder and more simplified in her portrayals of the female subject both in the two-dimensional form of her paintings and the three-dimensional form of her bronze sculptures. Energized by her wide-ranging and international experiences and her artistic endeavors, Romhild has been offering the art world a constantly evolving and fascinating body of work that reflects who she is as an artist and as a person.
