It’s color that touches my soul,
therefore I paint as a colorist.
As an artist I use oil as my medium.
Elizabeth Zack is an artistic healer. There is a vibrational frequency that she has instilled in her paintings that represent the virtue of their names and reflect the colors she has chosen. Color has been used for thousands of years to heal the soul and to feel more radiant. Her paintings are inspired by nature scenes. What she intuitively feels she puts on canvas.
Elizabeth’s journey to become an artistic healer started in 2000 when she was trying to find alternative ways to heal her son. In 2002 she lost her son in a physical way and began the road to heal herself. She returned to painting in 2008. Elizabeth has a special gift of bringing luminous color and light into her work healing the human soul.
Experience & Education
Elizabeth started out as a classical oil painter and then evolved from there. She first studied with Bucks County’s classical painter, Dot Bunn getting a solid foundation, learning color palette to mechanics of design in oil painting techniques. Then she studied plein air practicing principles of Illusionistic painting utilizing the wipe-out method and Linear Perspective with Patrick Connors, Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. She went on to study with Emily Thompson, experimenting with abstract painting. Finally, she studied with Ty Hodanish an impressionistic artist. Her painting is contemporary which allows her spirit to flow through. It is through experimentation of painting in different styles that Elizabeth has developed her own unique style. Her art is a play between Abstract and Realism. It is less about the subject than the emotions the subject evokes. She professes that her artistic talent comes from her Mother’s family in which there are a number of established painters of French heritage.
She is a member of the New Hope Art League, Chairwoman of the Scholarship Committee, a member of Artsbridge Art League and Philadelphia Sketch Club. Elizabeth has facilitated the Art Expression Day of “Empower U” program for teenage girls at the Central Bucks Family YMCA.
