Elize graduated from the Michaelis School of Fine Arts in 2015 with a BAFA majoring in printmaking and art history. In 2016 she obtained her honours degree in Curatorial studies also from the Michaelis School of Fine Arts. Since her studies, Elize has worked in various sectors of the creative industry, from galleries, libraries, framing studios and book restoration binderies. Currently Elize runs her own bindery, Bookward Bound Bindery, where she collaborates with artists, designers, and retailers to make custom books and enclosures.
Her artist practice, books and abstraction are some of the main sources of inspiration for her work. This is rooted in the fact that she is dyslexic and her relationship with books and words is slightly different to that of the average reader, as she is fascinated by a book’s objectivity. Through her work she continues to explore those relationships in the form of printmaking and book arts; further developing and expanding those concepts of words, knowledge, access to knowledge, abstraction, and books. Currently Elize is exploring the concepts around libraries and their functions within a modern digital age.
