Photographer Profile: Elizabeth Kimes

Elizabeth Joy Kimes was born in Portland , and raised in a rural community outside Washougal, Washington. She has always been drawn towards the arts and nature; however her passion for photography did not develop until later in life.
Elizabeth ’s schooling was focused on business with her degree in international economics from the University of Washington . She continued on for additional education in accounting and human resources, after twelve years working in these fields – her passion for photography started to call.

A strong family influence of the arts, a childhood surrounded by nature, combined with a high level of skill on computers led Elizabeth to the upcoming media of digital photography. Living by example of Goethe “All things are possible once you make them so.”, Elizabeth has set her mind to blending her time in the corporate world to include a balance with nature and travel photography.

Originally inspired by photography of Ansel Adams and paintings of both Claude Monet and Georgia O’Keeffe; Elizabeth combines her photography with graphic design to blend nature with art. Elizabeth continues to pursue new mediums focusing on digital photography – photo illustrations, nature and travel.

Photography gives Elizabeth a diversion needed in this world, being able to focus on the intricacies and beauty of life around her. She hopes to inspire others who share Elizabeth ’s desire to explore nature and photography.
