Elizabeth Barton is a full time artist and printmaker with works in private and public collections world wide, including Mobil and the V & A Museum Prints Collection.
She uses a variety of media, but is attracted to colour pencil as an extension of her love for drawing.
Formerly a resident artist at the School Creative Centre, later the Rye Creative Centre, she is now establishing her own studio in Te Aroha, New Zealand.
She has been a member of the Society of Graphic Fine Art since 2009, having been a member in the 1990s, and is also a member of the East London Printmakers.
Her work draws upon the Romantic tradition in English art, and the French Symbolists.
She is represented by Moray Gallery in Dunedin, New Zealand's oldest dealer Gallery.
