Elizabeth Marruffo was born in 1976 in the border town of Douglas, Arizona.
Her early years were spent growing up in the Mexican town of Aqua Prieta, and then making the daily commute across the boarder to be educated in the United States. She moved to the United Kingdom when she was 7, and lived there until her early teens when she was moved again to Australia.
In beautifully rendered oils, Liz’ work explores the tension between home and identity.
