Collection: Elizabeth Joy Peters

Elizabeth Peters plans to graduate with a BA Honours Studio Art Program from Brock University in the spring of 2024. She is a Niagara-based multidisciplinary artist who uses her art practice to dive deeper into disability representation. While she works primarily in painting, Elizabeth also works in sculpture, digital art, and photography. At a young age Elizabeth was diagnosed with ADHD, and a severe form of alpha dyslexia as well as a numeric dyslexia (dyscalculia). While she struggled at first with her diagnosis and feeling comfortable with herself, as she grew older, so did her confidence. Now Elizabeth strives to use her art practice to create the representation she did not have growing up. She wishes to further the conversation regarding mental health and Disabilities.

A selection of works from her collection “Why Can’t You Just Be” will be featured in the Expression exhibition, gives a glimpse into snapshots of her mental landscape and what it is like to live with ADHD and dyslexia. The works feature an overwhelming chaotic amalgamation of purposeful marks and fluid lines intended to depict an internal storm that competes with a perceived external control.
