Elisabeth McGinn, Norfolk, VA



Elisabeth has sketched since childhood, being very fond of drawing portraits. In 2002 she happened upon a painting group while living in Southern California. Because of that great location, she had the opportunity to study in plein air with some wonderful painters. Painting has been a life changing experience for her. She has continued to paint and hone her skills ever since that first day. 

Because she was a US Navy spouse, she has had the opportunity to paint in many beautiful coastal locations including the Pacific Northwest, New England, Southern California, Virginia, and Italy. 
“I feel very blessed to be able to record some of the beauty around me with my paints. I think my strong foundation in drawing was wonderful preparation, enabling me to advance more quickly in the oils.
