Elizabeth Barrett

Elizabeth graduated from Queen's University with a degree in Natural Sciences in 1967. After raising a family of 3 children, she went back 30 years later, to York University to pursue her interest in Art, graduating in 1997 with a degree in Fine Arts, specializing in painting, sculpture and design.

She has taken a number of courses at the Haliburton School of Fine Arts, as well as focused workshops with painters from across Canada. The paintings are of varied mediums such as watercolour, acrylic and mixed media. Her work reflects a close affinity to nature and wildlife.

Eight years ago she began to focus on sculpture, working with different types of stone. After a few years of instruction at Haliburton she began to take additional courses at Zim Art at Rice Lake, working with South African sculptors, Elizabeth further experimented with her own designs which were better suited for a metal medium, rather than stone.

The style of much of her work is semi-abstract reflecting a mood or feeling representational of the subject matter on the canvas or in stone. She has exhibited her work in group and solo shows and has been a member of the Central Ontario Art Association and now lives at Sturgeon Point near Fenelon Falls.
