Elizabeth is a current member of NyMusikk composer community in Norway, a recipient of A.G. Francis Prize for Composition in 2019, awarded by Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University, where she studied under Dr. Erik Griswold. In 2020, Elizabeth had completed her diploma studies in composition and applied music theory at Norwegian Academy of Music in Oslo with Bente Leiknes Thorsen and Kjell Habbestad.

As an experienced artist, Elizabeth successfully transitioned to the world of academic music after many years of studying the disciplines of visual arts, composition and sculpture. She brought her aesthetic training to a different medium, bringing her skills to a new horizon and exploring the relationship of visual and musical.

Currently, Elizabeth is concentrating on writing chamber, choral, electroacoustic music amongst other genres, as well as expanding her expertise in multimedia and experimental art.
Her recent involvements include fellowships at IMPULSE New Music Festival (CA, US) with  Jacqueline A. Rolle Memorial Scholarship; reMusik contemporary music forum; Art, Research and Creation Opus aka ARCO (FR); DARMSTÄDTER FERIENKURSE (DE); Impuls Academy in Graz, Nief Norf new music festival (TN/USA); Anemoi Wind Quintet (AU); Women of Noise (AU) participation and organisation under curation of multitalented Phoebe Bognar, and a variety of solo collaborations and projects with individual artists she meets on her journey.

Elizabeth aspires to explore the potential in the contemporary arts and strongly believes in power of collaboration, where each artist gets the opportunity to have their creative voice realised and communicated to the listener. She also hopes to bring storytelling and experimental concepts to a new level and broaden the horizons of contemporary music/art with her practice of these disciplines.
