Ah. A breathe of fresh air. Paintings by Elizabeth Schuppe. Her use of color evokes feelings of serenity and joy. You may have spotted her painting above on page 275 in the March issue of Glamour magazine (USA). Stunning.
With a degree in studio art from Skidmore College, and with her art featured in glamour magazine and currently on display at Tao Living in the west village (nyc), this is an artist worth looking at.
Talented Elizabeth has a keen eye for color and design. She started working as a graphic designer (to pay the bills!), which left her with little time to paint, which is her greatest love. She knew this had to change, so she leapt into painting full time and never looked back. Influenced by the abstract expressionists of the 1950s, she uses the elements of painting itself ? color, line, shape, texture, and light ? to express emotions rather than including recognizable objects. There is no plan in her painting, yet there is definite process. She lets a color or line dictate what comes next.
Elizabeth Schuppe. She’s going places. Hopefully, on that empty wall in your living room.
