Elizabeth Berrien

World renowned wire sculptor Elizabeth Berrien creates intricate, brilliantly elegant wire sculptures. Life-size wire Pegasus in a Kentucky airport and a Canadian raceway, a towering T-Rex at DisneyWorld. Larry Niven's massive wire Fithp. People, creatures, spacecraft... all in wire!

A top world illustrator, Berrien's international awards include two Cannes gold lions, a Clio, and the prestigious Big Won rating for "Best Alternative/Innovative Medium."

Berrien's wire sculpture technique is deceptively simple: Twist two wires together. And another... and another... Drawing with wires, she intuitively seeks out the lines that best evoke essential spirit and energy. Her works are in museums, public and private collections worldwide...

As "Godmother of Wire", Elizabeth sparked a renaissance in contemporary wire sculpture. Her website is an essential resource with hundreds of sculpture images, a free online tutorial and lesson plan.

Berrien resides in Eureka, California.

Custom commissions are very, very welcome.
