Elizabeth Ellison is an impressionistic painter, whose art expresses how she feels about living in the Smoky Mountains. Enjoy this online gallery of her works on paper, canvas, & mixed media; and stop by her studio/gallery on your next visit to Western North Carolina.
Elizabeth often uses some of the earth and sand from mountain streams in her paintings. She also frequently gathers and processes native Appalachian plants to make the handmade papers she uses. The land has nurtured her creativity, and to honor it, she and her husband George have set up a private conservation easement to protect the watershed where they live. Their land is surrounded on three sides by the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
