Elizabeth Harris, a resident of St. Augustine since the 1970’s, has painted since she was
a child. Her watercolors reflect a love for the beauty of the Nation’s
Oldest City. Elizabeth paints with both opaque and translucent watercolors with
a preference for bright colors. She enjoys including a tremendous amount of
detail with an extremely fine brush. Her formal artistic training was
obtained at Flagler College, El Instituto de Allende, and Bellas Artes in Mexico. Her
favorite artists include Hieronymus Bosch, Diego Velazquez, John Singer Sargent, Winslow Homer, Remedios Varo, and Frida Kahlo.
Elizabeth is a retired high school Spanish and art teacher.
