Elizabeth Zanzinger

15th Annual ARC Salon (2020-2021)

Elizabeth Zanzinger

United States

Elizabeth is an award-winning painter with an enthusiastic international following. She developed her artistic voice during her time at the Aristides Atelier and Gage Academy of Fine Art in Seattle. Elizabeth finished her education with a fellowship award (Grand Prize, 2nd Annual Utrecht Art Competition) at the Grand Central Academy, New York City, in 2012. Since then she has completed a number of commissioned portraits of accomplished individuals and served as a faculty member for the Portrait Society of America Conference in Washington DC. She has shown her work nationally, and is also in the collection Museu Europeu d'Art Modern in Barcelona, Spain. Her work is also currently being shown at NUMU Los Gatos Museum of Art.

Elizabeth's paintings echo the traditional skills gained from a disciplined classical training, although the work often celebrates non-traditional subjects. Through expert painting from life and rhythmic compositions she imbues mundane subjects with a sense of beauty and wonder. Using strong drawing abilities, skilled brushwork, and luminous color she has combined approaches from multiple influences to create her own unique approach to painting. Her work is often loaded with detail, and yet her brushwork can be loose to give breath and movement to the images.
