Elizabeth Bame Artist Bio:
Elizabeth Bame graduated from Andrews University, in Berrien Springs, MI with an Associate Degree in Commercial Art in 1985, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in 1989. Her career in graphic design brought her to Atlanta, GA in 1990, when she accepted the position of Art Director for a publishing company, where she is still employed. A few years after moving to Atlanta, Elizabeth began her studies with artist Chris DiDomizio at DiDomizio Old World Art Studio. She has also taken workshops from Marc Hanson and Micheal Del Priore. This additional education, instruction and experience continued to enhance her artistic skills. She has been hin numerous juried shows, won many awards for her landscapes and portraits. She was also selected for the Red Cinder Artist-in-Residence program in 2003. Elizabeth taught several portrait painting classes at the Sandy Springs Art School. She currently has four of her paintings hanging in the office of Speaker of the House, David Ralston at the Georgia State Capitol.
“With each painting, my ultimate goal is not merely the composition of an attractive scene, but the creation of a moment. And that moment is not an instant or a second. That moment should linger and breathe deeply. If I can take that moment and make it last forever … if I can somehow recreate that perfect experience of peace … then I believe I’ve been successful,” says Elizabeth.
Because of this desire to capture the moment, Elizabeth loves to paint outside, painting plein air. She participates several times a year in plein air painting events in Georgia. A few years ago, she and her husband were able to fulfill their dream of moving to the mountains of North Georgia. The Mountains and surrounding countryside have provided new inspirations, resources, and opportunities to paint from life outside.
