“I search for colors that create distance and mood, and light effects at different times of day where colors emerge that satisfy a colorist’s palette. I enjoy going back and forth between still life and landscape refreshing the different skills needed for both. I love the Vermont landscape and other places where I travel, always looking for color and dramatic light. I paint from life and, with the landscapes particularly, I work in the studio creating the scenes from references and imagination and a touch of whimsy.”
Elizabeth Allen earned her BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design, studying the Italian masters in Rome. While working in NYC in the design field, she attended the Art Students League for four years where she gained a classical foundation in figure and still life. After moving to Vermont 26 years ago, she painted the landscape finding a worthy subject for using color and light. An award winning artist, her work has been exhibited in many solo and group shows through Vermont and New York, including the Hudson Valley Art Association. Her award winning paintings are in private and corporate collections nationally and internationally. Her work has been published in two books by International Artist—“How Did you Paint That”, both landscapes and still life. The local publisher, Verve Publications, included her lake painting in “The Art of Lake Champlain”. She recently completed a commission for the
University of Vermont Cancer Center.
