BIO: Elizabeth Barsham was born on King Island, grew up in Hobart, studied art in Melbourne under a former student of Norman Lindsay and has had paintings hung in the Blake Prize, City of Hobart Art Award Exhibition and other major exhibitions. Her paintings have won many awards and have been acquired by Monash University and by private collectors world wide.

She exhibits regularly in commercial galleries and in some mixed exhibitions in Tasmania and has been teaching drawing and painting at Adult Education since returning to Hobart in 1997. She now teaches at Nolan Art School in Salamanca Place, Hobart as well as giving private tuition.
