Danish Californian Artist Elisabeth 'Bess'. Is inspired by graphics, impressionism and studied cartooning for a while. Her paintings are loose and playful. Works in oil , acrylic and water colors. Expect a really fun show. L'Atelier will be showing a lot of new works by Bess and also some of her older pieces.
I am an enthusiatic amateur - In New York I focused on people, in Southern California I like to paint on location ; - mainly at the coast but also in the foothills.
I like to play up color and shapes; I challenge myself to paint things I have been intimidated by like large trees, palms, cacti !
I don't paint to sell and I do have a day job.
But, I do like to share and have sold paintings right off the easel!
I have taken art classes at Brooklyn Museum, The New York Art Students league, UCSD Extension and La Jolla Atheneum
+ workshops with Jeff Yeomans, K Elsey,
Elisabeth Refn joined Fine Art America on May 1st, 2014.
