About the artist: Born, Elisabeta Mészáros, in Transilvania, city of Arad, Romania. Elisabeta (Betty) is a European Trained Artist, who migrated to the USA in November 2004. She now resides in Denver, CO where she relocated from the Richmond, VA area. From an early age, Elisabeta was fascinated by colors and drawings. Her mother saw her potential as an artist and encouraged her studies through elementary school. She learned how to create real art from several of the best contemporary artists, instructors, in this field of art in Romania. She studied and excelled in all aspects of 2D and 3D art. At age 16, Elisabeta sold her first piece of art, a sculpture statue of "Buddha" (20cmX20cm in clay). An older gentleman saw her carrying the statue in a mesh bag and asked her if she wanted to sell it. The work was not completely dry and Betty told the gentleman this, not really wanting to sell the statue. He continued to follow her to where her mother worked, insisting he wanted to buy it right then. One need be mindful that this was 1975 Romania under Communist rule. The economy was very poor and every bit of income counted. Betty questioned her mother as to what to do. Her mother simply looked at her and asked, "Have you lost your mind?" then told her to sell it. Betty's professors at the often criticized her in the intermediate stages of her paintings because she had "Too Many Colors on her pallet" and she "would never be able to bring all the colors she had together in a finished painting." In spite of this, Betty always successfully completed her paintings, to their amazement. Betty migrated to the USA in Nov. of 2004 to marry her current husband, John, and restarted to paint in the USA in Jan. of 2006. Since than she exhibited in several major galleries in Richmond and Petersburg (VA) area (such as: Crossroads Art Gallery, Art Works and Petersburg Regional Art Center) mainly, participated in several juried shows and earned multiple I, II, III placements and an Honorable Mention; she also exhibited in Fort Lauderdale (FL), Winning the 2nd Place in the Prestigous Juried Show event, "Masquerade"........and now in Colorado. Elisabeta Hermann's inspirational artistic visual expression is exclusive, charming, restless, and full of passion and color. The mystery of this exceptional Fine Art painter's aesthetic achievement occurs when the various depicted subjects develop energy equal to the strength of the artist's own regard. After many years of hard work, Elisabeta is a very successful artist having participated in numerous Group Exhibitions and Juried Shows Nationwide, where she has received many awards for her work. Prior and current exhibitions of her work include in galleries, libraries, and cafes, and include media publications in VA, FL and CO. Many of Elisabeta's exceptional works are currently hanging in private collections in across the USA, Central America and Europe. Soon Relocating to Europe!
