elisabeth arbuckle ~ artist bio
Elisabeth Arbuckle is a graphic designer by training, an art teacher by experience and a forever artist by practice.
Born in Wales, she attended art schools in the U.K. where she started her teaching career, working in England, The Bahamas and eventually Canada.
“Teaching gave me the opportunity to share my love and enjoyment of art and creativity, but to also receive new ideas, to share different approaches and to create a visual dialogue with the students".
With retirement comes a new direction.
Elisabeth also maintains a studio at The Nepean Creative Arts, Stafford Studios, she has exhibited her work with a number of groups around Ottawa, including Foyer Gallery, OMMA, Arteast, Nepean Fine Arts League and New Edinburgh Studio Tour. She was featured in Ottawa Life Magazine in 2016.
