Artist
Elizabeth Garat Memphis, Tennessee

Growing up in California and Colorado, Elizabeth spent much of her formative years outdoors. “Exposure to nature early on planted the seed of landscape painting in me,” she says. She enjoyed spending time on her grandfather’s sunny sheep ranch and going to the beach with her grandmother. Her grandmother also would bring her to art galleries in Laguna Beach, where she was first introduced to California Impressionism. Today, Elizabeth lives in Tennessee and enjoys painting both outdoors and in her studio, a detached garage at her home. She has a keen interest in working with color and capturing the effects of light.

    Artist Statement

    I paint landscapes because it connects me to the natural world. Painting outside is challenging and fulfilling. I like exploring the moods and essence of a place in a multi-sensory way. Through seeing, smelling, touching, and hearing, I distill and interpret my experience of a particular time and place.
    Painters from history who inspire me include; John Singer Sargent, Gabrielle Münter, Tom Thomson, Corot, Monet and Ray Strong.
