Elizabeth Breakell

A native of Delaware County, Elizabeth Breakell is trained as a scientific and technical illustrator and worked as a freelance graphic artist for many years, however, Ms Breakell considers herself a lifelong student of painting.

In 1990, Ms Breakell was employed by Delaware County Courthouse and is retired from her position as Deputy Register. This has allowed her to focus her energies on the art of oil painting; which has included workshops in Ireland, Italy, France and many classes in still life, figure & landscape.

Focusing on how best to describe the light shadow and atmosphere in a particular image whether it be a landscape, still life, figure or interior, has been the primary challenge and enjoyment for Elizabeth as a painter.
