Elizabeth Preston


Elizabeth M. Preston, M.A., is an award-winning artist and educator who paints and teaches art in “Elizabeth’s Art Studio” in Claremont, California. Initially she studied representational painting under a number of watercolorists in St. Louis, Northern Ohio and Chicago, including Clarence Perkins, Robert Tacketch, Dan Stone, Florian Laughton, Lowell Ellsworth Smith, Robin Wertz, and Nancy Fortunato. Relocating to California, she further pursued a fascination with color and light using a variety of media in a representational style. She studied at various times under noted artists Mary Aslin, Gerald Brommer, Robert Burridge, Jean Carbonetti, Betty Hook, Fealing Lin, Barbara Nechis, Chris Van Winkle and Milford Zornes, in order to arrive at her own abstract impressionistic style. Her efforts were rewarded by inclusion in North Light Books’ Fourth Annual Best of Acrylic Art publication, “Acrylic Works 4: Captivating Color,” (May, 2017) and highlighted in Southwest Art magazine’s April 2017 issue. In 2020, Elizabeth celebrates the 25th anniversary of Elizabeth’s Art Studio in Claremont. She holds weekly art classes for adults and children and also provides private and semiprivate lessons. Currently Elizabeth is represented by Gallery SOHO in Montclair, CA. She resides in Mt. Baldy Village in the San Gabriel Mountains overlooking Claremont and the Los Angeles basin.
