Elizabeth Jose, Painter
Elizabeth Jose grew up in Hornchurch, Essex, just east of London. A trained artist and vocalist, she spent much of her life as an entertainer before settling in Taos, New Mexico in 2005. There, in the natural beauty and high desert elevation, Elizabeth refocused her life on art and discovered the joys of painting Plein Aire.

We made the detour and spent a giddy hour positioning the flamingos and lying on the sand to […]
