About the Artist
Originally from Columbia, SC Elizabeth Foster studied Studio Art and Art History at the University of Virginia, drawing at the New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting and Sculpture, and continued on to study art and teaching at the University of South Carolina. She began writing and playing music with SC singer-songwriter Hannah Traylor Dixon for 7 years. Their folk collaboration took them all over the US as well as overseas while producing two independent records. Since then she has released a solo record, “San Francisco” and continues to write and perform. My love for music greatly influences the images I create. In Nashville, I am surrounded by the most incredible Americana, Folk, Bluegrass, Jazz, and Old Time players and performers. I am drawn to the familiarity of pattern within, the feeling of nostalgia, and the underlying current of emotional release. To me, writing music is the exact same creative process as painting, listening is the same as looking, and singing to an audience is the same as that opening gallery night.
