My recent collection reflects back on my beginning days of charcoal portraits. Instead I use oil paintings to illustrate the various moods and inner essences of the portrait. This collection is large canvas in blue Hughes that may have hint of other colors..
Liz Mahoney grew up in sunny California and moved at a young age cross country to the East Coast. Stumbling upon her mothers hatbox full of oils as a child, Liz became curious about art. She spent hours daily escaping in a sketch pad or a canvas teaching herself how to draw and paint. In college Liz studied in Florence at Lorenzo de Medici and picked up the foundation to her passion; oil painting. While it began with a focus on people and the human figure, she has developed a new inspiration within the hidden streets of Europe. Currently Liz paints oil on canvas with bold, rich colors illustrating movement in still streets. Her series tells a romantic story through cobblestone streets of Europe.
