Elizabeth Magill Biography

Born in 1959, Magill is a painter who depicts aspects of nature. While she was born in Canada, she grew up in Northern Ireland and attended the Belfast College of Art to study painting as a Fine Arts Degree from 1979 to 1982. From 1982 to 1984 she attended the Slade College of Fine Arts and received her Masters of Arts in Painting. Her paintings frequently explore the effects of the sublime, focusing on small aspects of nature like rain drops or leaves that can often go unnoticed. She often draws on pratices of photography, integrating photographic materials and processes into her paintings.
