A lifelong student of painting, Pennsylvania native Elizabeth Breakell works  primarily in oils.  With a background in scientific and technical illustration Elizabeth has softened the edges of her subjects and infused them with light.

 

Studying with regional and national artists such as Christine Lafuente, Donna Cusano, Frances Galante and others over the last fifteen years has rounded out Elizabeth's training.  Her plein air landscapes capture the essence of a day whether a cornfield, a coastline or brightly blooming treeline. Stories unfold through her interior scenes, sunlight filtering through the sheers, blocks of light on the floor, the viewer is transported through her images.
