Elizabeth Malara MFA, SCA

Born in Cracow, Poland; her affair with painting and drawing began quite early under the guidance of artist Ewa Mrozowska, who referred her to the great art tradition of the capital of Poland as well as of European painting. She developed and accomplished her master’s studies in the Cracow Academy of Fine Arts, under the supervision of renowned Professors: Stanisław Rodziński and Zbylut Grzywacz.

For many years, Elizabeth has been devoted full-time to painting from her home studio. Her work is focused on nature, rendered mostly in oil, watercolor, and acrylic technique. She has also been working as an art director and graphic designer with the advertising agency “D’EL Art”. She has made many illustrations, cover artworks, and design for books.
