"All of my work has something to do with the idea of 'home' and the temporary comfort that it provides. Though not a self-portrait, Top Knot 1 reflects the persistent quiet I experience as a person who spends most of her time alone working in a home studio. A familiar house and the objects within can have both a calming effect and, if enough time is spent there, a thick, all-encompassing serenity. The everywoman depicted in Top Knot 1 is definitely in a motionless space brimming with silence." - Elizabeth Mayville
Elizabeth Mayville earned her BFA in 2006 and has been painting and working in Grand Rapids, Michigan ever since. All of her work has something to do with the idea of "home". She's fascinated by the small bits of our world that stabilize us and can quickly disappear. Whether it be a still life of very personal items or a local landscape, each painting has a quality that makes the artist feel both comforted and anxious.

Skip the trip to the framer and let ArtStar do the work with our One Click Framing.
Choose from our high-end white, black or natural frames, or opt for a more modern look by selecting facemounted to thick Plexiglas.
All frames include:
- UV-blocking acrylic glass, which protects against 91% of UV rays.
- Acid-free, archival mats and materials.
- Taped backs to prevent dust from getting into the frame.
- Strainers on the back to reinforce the structure of the frame.
- Wire on the back of the frame for easy installation.
- Facemounted works are hung on a metal French cleat. Installation instructions are included in the packaging.
Extra small and small frames have .75" molding 2" mats, and are 1.2" deep. Medium and large frames have 1" molding, 3" mats and are 2" deep. Mattless frames have a spacer to prevent the print from touching the acrylic.
We do not frame the extra large print sizes because they are too large to ship without risking damage.
