About


Elizabeth McMahon is an artist whose love of color and happenstance has inspired her work from painting to songwriting, puppetry to collage. Living in Upstate New York, the seasons and surprises in nature inspire the spontaneity in Elizabeth’s work. She began her studies at Parsons School of Design in Fashion and transferred to Painting at Syracuse University. Soon after in the '80s she joined the Adam Gimble Gallery in NYC. When raising a family, she shifted her focus to puppetry, songwriting, and performing, winning a Parent Choice Award for her recording, Waltzing with Fireflies in 1994. Now, back in the fine arts, the drama and theatrics of performance continues. Most recently in October 2021, her artwork was selected for the Mixed Media Award at the Buchanan Center for the Arts in Monmouth, Illinois. In March, a solo exhibition is scheduled at the Roaring Artist Gallery in Dallas, Texas. From her gigantic cakes of the '80s to her Tea Party Shuffle Dance Song to the latest bricolage, The Birds and the Bees and the Z-bra Trees, Elizabeth embraces the moment and translates her life into art.
