Elizabeth Fontaine-Barr

Elizabeth Fontaine Barr

Distinguished as an award-winning expressionistic painter, Elizabeth Fontaine-Barr translates her passion for the beauty of nature into color-drenched landscapes that come mostly from her imagination.

Born and raised in the unique and vibrant city of New Orleans, Louisiana, Elizabeth decided at the age of nine to be an artist. She graduated from the University of New Orleans with a major in painting.

Although focused on figurative themes during her early days as a painter, today Elizabeth concentrates on landscapes, and more recently, cloudscapes. She explains, “There is something about the amazing colors in nature and the endless beautiful compositions that keep me so engaged with my work. I soak in the shapes of the trees, the hillsides or mountains, the gorgeous fluffy clouds, the different foliage and the hundreds of different colors. I call myself an expressionist painter. I tend to paint what I feel rather than what I see. A lot of my landscapes are completely from my imagination."
