Elizabeth Leary paints architectural landscapes and still lifes. Her eye is uniquely developed to see both the architectural and spiritual essence of her subjects. Mrs. Leary’s approach to color in her work further enhances the simplicity and clarity. Primarily employing a palette of earth colors with nuances of shadow, she gives her paintings depth and texture. Her use of glazing techniques and layering of washes allows her to preserve the smooth, crisp surface of her works, yet suffuse them with warmth, light and dimension.
Mrs. Leary has worked with architects, most notably Walter Gropius and the Architects’ Collaborative in Cambridge. She has had over 30 one-man shows and enjoys a diverse and extremely enthusiastic following of collectors.
