Originally from upstate New York, Elizabeth B. Tucker moved to Southern California in her early 20s. While she had always worked with her hands in the needle arts, it was her husband who encouraged her to begin drawing and painting when he gave her an easel as a gift. Seeking teachers who would teach her in the classical tradition Elizabeth studied at the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art and Art Center College of Design, and has studied privately with Ryan Wurmser, Aaron Westerberg and Wei Lo.
Often working with a limited palate of colors Elizabeth is interested primarily in how light moves and wraps around objects.
Her collectors describe her work as, “soothing and calms the soul” and “…with the use of warm colors, subtle lighting and a penchant for transforming common subjects into uncommon topics of conversation, Lizz’s art brings you in to her world of quiet elegance.”
Now a teacher herself, Elizabeth is a member of the Pasadena Society of Artists, the California Art Club, Women Painters West and is the president of the Angeles Crest Art Guild.
