Elizabeth Barrett has enjoyed a passion for painting since early childhood. She has developed much of her artistic skill and style from self-education and practice. She is especially gifted at painting portraits and still life. Barrett captures the essence of a person or animal largely through facial expression, lighting, and highly crafted detail. She works mostly with oil but also with acrylics and watercolor. Currently focusing her art on the old master’s technique, she incorporates years of painting experience using a variety of methods.
