She is the artist of one of the longest running strips in the Philippine Daily Inquirer, Loveknots.

It was first published in that broadsheet in 1988. She is also the artist of Nini Liit, which was published in the People's Journal in 1981. Her other works include Pipo, Bobita, and Tres Chicks. When asked about what she thought about the comic strips in the newspapers today, she says, "What I can say is that most of the authors of our comic strips are very young, and some strips are written in english...ibang-iba during our time."

Elizabeth is a Fine Arts graduate of the University of Sto. Tomas. Get to meet this great artist this coming October 21st at the KOMIKON!!!!
