About Elizabeth Carr

Elizabeth J. Carr


Elizabeth Carr was born while her father was stationed in Coco Solo, Panama, reared in a military family, traveled around most of the U.S. and Germany, then married a Naval officer and repeated the pattern for several years, before finally settling in Acworth, GA in 1985.

She has been studying watercolor painting for most of her adult life and struggling to find a balance between her mothering/homeschooling career and her love for watercolors. For more than 25 years, she practically kept her fine arts talent on the back burner, although she never totally abandoned her call as a watercolorist. “When I could not find time to paint, I would spend what little energy I had left at the end of my day, pouring over my beloved watercolor magazines, reading them cover to cover, and painting hundreds of pictures in my mind. I literally dreamed watercolor!” Apparently, this is not such a poor method, for she has been the recipient of many awards through those years. Diversity of subject and method is her strong point, choosing to use whatever method best suits the subject matter and feeling she wishes to convey at the time. She has attained Signature Membership of both the Georgia Watercolor Society and The Watercolor Society of Alabama, and her work is shown at Frameworks Gallery, Marietta, GA and Downtown Gallery, Cartersville, GA, as well as various exhibits nationwide. Although, she works primarily in watercolors, she is competent in oil painting, pastels and drawing and enjoys the added challenge of commissioned portraits. Teaching what she has learned to others is a great source of enjoyment and growth. She currently teaches adult watercolor at Kennesaw State University’s Continuing Education as well as private workshops. Today, many of her paintings are held in private collections nationwide.
