Elizabeth Bissonnette graduated from Mount Allison University in the BFA program and traveled to Ireland for an artist residency at the Burren College of art. Living in the beautiful scenery of the Burren area has influenced her practice by incorporating textiles and embroidery into her newest work. 
The majority of her paintings have revolved around portraiture and explorations of the face along with color and digital imagery. In her painting practice she tries to push the comparisons between the digital realm and the painted, a digitally altered photograph and the faces she chooses to depict. Color is also an important element in her painting practice as she uses it to define different facets of the face.  Elizabeth now lives and works out of Limoges, Ontario, a small French community just outside Ottawa.
