ELISABETH ANISIMOW, 12, is an artist. She has been painting since she was a toddler. Today, her work can be found all around the world. “The best part about being a painter is that I can express myself,” Elisabeth told TIME for Kids. “Being a painter is a lot of work. But so is any other kind of creative process.”

Elisabeth is working on a series. It is called Living Art. She dresses up models. She paints them in settings from history. “There’s no real limit in the world of art,” Elisabeth says.

The young artist lives in California. She has advice for other creators. “Believe in yourself,” she says. “Follow your heart.”
