Biography

Elizabeth Phelps Meyer was born in Mount Kisco, New York. She is an interdisciplinary artist who integrates a variety of approaches from the fine arts as well as from performance, poetry, and craft traditions to create installations as well as moving images/ experimental animation. Meyer’s work is fueled by ideas of spiritual practice and transformation and how these might overlap with imaginative, creative actions that are both personally and socially restorative. Her current projects address spiritual and social dimensions of our current ecological crises. Meyer has been a student of Buddhism for over twenty years and has studied and practiced in Burma, Nepal, and the USA. She currently lives with her husband and young daughter in Poughkeepsie, NY, where she teaches Visual Art.
