ELIZABETH WEBER began painting as soon as she was able to get her fingers dirty. She was born and raised in Augusta, Georgia, and moved to Atlanta at age 16 to study painting and drawing at the Atlanta College of Art. In the middle of her schooling, the college merged with the Savannah College of Art and Design, pushing her to take time off to pursue a more intensive and unique way of painting. Living in her studio in Atlanta and painting full time enabled her to build a body of work in the city for the next year showing her paintings and drawings in numerous locations. She began accepting commissions for oil portraits and other paintings, and used these resources to perfect her ability to capture each image on canvas exactly as it was envisioned. This realistic painting-technique was so enjoyable that it began shaping her own style. She has showed her work around the mid-west at several locations including galleries and in private collections, as well as assisting in murals, appearing as a guest artist, and participating in art festivals. Elizabeth Weber currently resides in Chicago, painting full-time.
