Art has always been a part of her life and her creativity took many forms. Her favorite medium always has been transparent watercolor. Paintings selected for numerous juried exhibitions have earned Elizabeth many awards and prizes.  She has exhibited her work at the Salmagundi Club and other New York City galleries and participated in group exhibits and solo shows throughout the New York / New Jersey area.

After moving to Arizona, she became a juried member of the Sonoran Arts League and participated in their weekly Art Talks and Sketch Group activities. She participated in the Empty Bowls Project and the Hidden in the Hills Studio Tour and several other exhibits.

The Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture, in collaboration with the Street Transportation Department, Arizona State University and the Seventh Avenue Merchants Association, selected Elizabeth Pfeiffer to create artwork that was incorporated into streetscape along Seventh Avenue. Two original paintings were reproduced, enlarged, and fabricated into backlit signage that is installed in the public right-of-way.

Elizabeth’s images were selected by the Water Conservation Manager of Glendale to be used in a joint venture between the City of Glendale and Lowes Stores in Arizona for the Water Use it Wisely campaign. Her photographs of the Glendale Xeriscape Garden have been included in the Snapshots of Glendale section of the Glendale Visitor Center’s website.

The Glendale Library invited Elizabeth to serve on the selection committee for the Habitat Garden Outdoor Classroom called Meditation at the Main Library on Brown Street.

One of her images is currently on the Glendale Library’s member’s card.

She is a juried member of the Arizona Watercolor Association, the Contemporary Watercolorists of Arizona, and the Vanguard Artists.

Her painting “Sunflowers and Fruit” was awarded Best in Show Award in CWA’s Fall and Winter Exhibit.
