Elizabeth Bauman Keizer, Oregon
Elizabeth lives and paints in Keizer, Oregon. She graduated from Willamette University with a degree in art. While a student, Elizabeth focused on sculpture even though she prefers painting these days. Although she has been painting for years, Elizabeth only began offering a significant level of her work for sale in 2006. The nature of online commerce and galleries enabled her to share her work with a broad online audience. We have seen a steady increase in interest in Elizabeth’s work. Her paintings have been featured in “The Salem Project” and “Downtown LA Life Magazine.” Elizabeth is inspired by vintage photographs, early American portrait painters, and early 20th century artists. Her work is primarily from vintage photographs that she finds (seemingly discarded or forgotten by original owners). Her paintings communicate the grace involved in giving her subjects new and enduring life.
