Biography:

Liz Beard works full-time painting and teaching in Queens NY at Grand Central Atelier. Her current interests include symbolic still-life and figurative works done in her studio from live models and studies made from observation. Her work is both autobiographical and an exploration of tradition, poetry, and beauty. Guided by the look of nature, she aims to convey what is most poignant in what she sees.
