Elizabeth (Sissi) Dewitte

Elizabeth Dewitte was born in Montreal, Quebec and is now living in Ogden, Utah. She received her MFA from the University of Utah in 2000. Elizabeth’s graduate work was dedicated to the exploration of how a visual artist could enlighten the general public regarding the uniqueness of the Great Salt Lake, the surrounding environment and most specifically, the roughly 250 different species of birds that thrive in this distinctive locale. Elizabeth has also worked as an illustrator and graphic designer for various companies in the United States as well as abroad. However, Elizabeth is most proud of her volunteer work in form of artwork for organizations such as Friends of Great Salt Lake, Ogden Nature Center, and Weber Pathways.

 

Elizabeth is currently employed as an Assistant Professor (Lecturer) at the University of Utah and her most recent focus has been the idea of sustainability and how working artists in addition to instructors of art can incorporate the concept of sustainability in their artwork as well as to their classrooms.
