A painter of seaside life, Elizabeth Mumford paints in a whimsical style with a nautical theme that reminds us of the simple pleasures and traditions of our American heritage. Her style is influenced by American Folk Art as well as Flemish painters of the 16th Century, primarily Breughel. Liz’s “signature” is a black painted border with bronze stenciled corners and red lettered text of quotations, bible versus and conventional New England wisdom.
Liz’s art is appreciated by collectors across the U.S. including exhibitions at Mystic Seaport Maritime Gallery, the Cotuit Center for the Art in Cotuit, MA and Cahoon Museum, Cotuit, MA. Liz has put many paintings into prints, note cards as well as needlepoint canvases and hand cut puzzles. She has designed programs and prints for many charities and schools.
