Adelaide-based artist and photographer, Elizabeth Solich, has been honing her skills in underwater photography for the past seven years. She has dived extensively throughout South Australia and her favorite dive sites include Port Hughes, Edithburgh, and Rapid Bay jetties. Solich has also dived in the Philippines, Fiji, and Indonesia and makes regular trips to Amed and Tulamben. Originally an architecture student, Solich blended her photography skills and underwater observations of the fauna and flora with her drawing and painting experience, bringing about a perfect marriage of her two passions. Elizabeth’s evolution into underwater photography allowed her to introduce another element to this union and extend the range of her talent even further. Her observations of marine fauna and flora allow Elizabeth to challenge boundaries, capturing the underwater world utilizing environmentally aware storytelling in the exploration of movement and composition. Elizabeth shares her passion for everything underwater with the world. Through her artwork, she expresses her never-ending admiration for the weird and wonderful underwater creations of nature. Her works have been displayed at various exhibitions in Australia and overseas. Elizabeth is a member of the Royal South Australian Society of Artists.
