Elizabeth Briel was born in the Bay Area, educated in Minneapolis where she received a BFA in Painting with additional studio work in Printmaking, and has lived in the Asia-Pacific region for 15 years. Now she lives and works in Kowloon, Hong Kong's "Dark Side", with occasional forays to the US and elsewhere – 2018 will see her working from studios in San Francisco, Barcelona, Taipei and Hong Kong.

Briel's art is made with materials that become talismanic: silk, sharks fins, paper made of US military uniforms, precious stones, US and Chinese currencies, French and British paper as a base for images made in their former colonies. At the heart of her work are experiments with multiple layers of meaning in the interaction of material culture, text vs spoken language, and cultural collisions.
