Elizabeth Powell has an unusual background in both fine arts and economics. She has a keen interest in color theory, patterning, and the morphology of shapes as psychological representations of femininity. Having extensively studied gender inequality in her economic studies, Powell explores the way the same sociological differences that lead to a systemic economic imbalance between men and women, present themselves in visual taste for form, pattern, and color. This interest exhibits itself mainly in her study of decorative arts, examining fashion, wallpaper, jewelry, and other forms of art that are typically associated with the femininity.
