Inspired by her Judeo-Christian heritage, Elizabeth Roszoha frequently paints Judaica, things that reflect the Jewish heritage, onto glass plates. According to Roszoha there are three reasons she paints:"to bring glory to God; to bring glory to the United States; and to bring glory to my native country."
Roszoha left Transylvania, the northern part of Romania, in 1979 and became a U.S. citizen six years later. "America always was the Promised Land for European people," commented Roszoha,"but you cannot be a good citizen of the U.S. if you don't also love your old country."
Through her artwork Roszoha continues to express love for her homeland, the place where she first became interested in art. She paints not only on glass and porcelain but also on ostrich eggs. Many of her pieces are adorned with traditional Hungarian and Romanian motifs, most of which include flowers.
The following are some of her more popular offerings.
