Elizabeth Tristram is a full-time painter and printmaker. She graduated from Rhodes University with a BA in Fine Arts (2008) and MA in Art History (2010).
Her art practice is centred around oil painting, linocut, and monotypes. The use of colour and light as well as nostalgic imagery are some of the defining factors of her artwork. Elizabeth is primarily a process-based artist, exploring the creative boundaries and methods behind both printmaking and painting. For Elizabeth, the magic of creating art lies in the ‘making’ as well as storytelling. Her body of work is representative, however, what it represents to the viewer is intensely personal – each person connecting to the imagery based on their own history and experiences.
Elizabeth works out of her home studio in Pretoria where she also teaches printmaking workshops and private art classes.
