Porter, Elisabeth

I was fortunate to have been raised in Las Cruces, New Mexico with diverse cultures, stunning landscapes and amazing quality of light.  Although I have a masters degree in education, I did not receive an art education.  For 35 years, I have been an Antique Chinese Porcelain Dealer living in London.  In 2006, I took my first painting workshop in Taos with painter, Leigh Gusterson whose vibrant landscapes had a deep impact on me.  A passion for beauty and an intense curiosity are my greatest blessings and painting is my gift to myself.  I paint for the process, for the time to be in nature, observing deeply and forgetting time.  In my paintings, I try to achieve harmony of movement, rhythm and color while sharing the passion I feel for New Mexico.
