Item #3 ELIZABETH RICKETSON
A graduate of Providence College with a BA in English, Elizabeth Ricketson has always had a love of literature and the fine arts. Painting and exploration of color has become her passion. She began her studies at Rhode Island School of Design with figure drawing with acclaimed artist Robin Wiseman in the 1990’s. Figure drawing brought her to focus on drawing and painting the portrait. Creating portraiture that expresses the subject’s essence is her greatest challenge and purist desire. Elizabeth is a member of the Danforth Art Museum, Post Road Art Center, Rocky Neck Art Colony, Cambridge Art Association, Southern Vermont Art Center and Vermont Art Council. She is actively exhibiting and winning awards in numerous shows throughout New England. Elizabeth is currently creating a series of documentary paintings focusing on the extraordinary and beautiful people of Kenya.
