Elizabeth Cope

Biography

Kilkenny based artist Elizabeth Cope is best known as a painter of bright, colorful pictures. She paints spontaneous, spirited still lives, views of interiors, animals, portraits and domesticated landscapes. Her style owes a great deal to Matisse and to another decorative artist, Raoul Dufy. She has exhibited widely, both in Ireland and abroad, and her paintings are held in a number of important public and private collections.
