Elizabeth Babyn received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Drawing and Painting at OCAD University in 2005. She worked and taught as an artist in Caledon Ontario, and moved to Saskatoon in 2011. As Babyn’s interest shifted from painting to sculpture and installation, she completed her Master of Fine Art degree in this area of study in 2016, at the University of Saskatchewan. Whether making intuitive non-objective paintings, or making installation and media-based work, Babyn has always viewed the art-making process from a meditative, spiritual and holistic perspective. As a consequence of her own personnel disconnect from the spiritual harmony that she seeks, Babyn currently focusses on dystopian realities that are linked to over-consumption, a discordant symptom that perpetuates her need to fill that void.
Babyn currently teaches part time at USCAD in Saskatoon, has been a Loop Gallery Member since 2003 and has exhibited in Ontario, Saskatchewan, Alberta and Italy. Her works can be found in both public and private collections in Canada and Europe.
