Liz Laribee is an artist and writer who founded The MakeSpace: an art collective in Harrisburg. Her projects, solo and collaborative, are largely influenced by and dedicated to community. As Director of the MakeSpace, she spends most of her time spackling walls, providing consultations to community members interested in launching projects, and writing grants.

Her work with The MakeSpace has been highlighted in The Burg, Central Voice, Harrisburg Magazine, The Patriot News, ABC27, Keystone Edge, and Fresh Photography's blog. As an artist, Laribee established the Recovering/Uncovering Art Co.
An interest in using the whole buffalo has shaped her creative process, and she works almost exclusively with salvaged materials with focuses mainly on cardboard portraiture, repurposed handcrafts, photography, and found poetry.

Her artwork has been shown widely in the Keystone State, including an exhibit at the Philadelphia Mausoleum of Contemporary Art. She also teaches workshops and classes on recycled art, creative writing, and poetry to students of all ages.
Though Laribee’s traveled to many a foreign clime, she takes great pleasure in her time in the Capital City of the great state of Pennsylvania.
