The Artist

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.

Recently, due to health issue, Liz has branched out into watercolor and gouache painting and will NOT be returning to oil painting. There are a few originals left for sale.

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 also designs programs, brochures and coloring books for many charities and schools.

Elizabeth Mumford’s art can be purchased at New England art galleries or by contacting Elizabeth Mumford on the inquire page.
