Elizabeth McGhee

Elizabeth McGhee (b. 1985, Southern California) completed her BFA in 2009 at the Laguna College of Art and Design, Laguna Beach, CA. She continued her studies at the Lance Richlin Atelier in Torrance, CA. McGhee draws from pop culture, literary references, and puns when composing her classically styled still life paintings. She says, "I often turn to humor to address serious or controversial subjects in my artwork. With my still life paintings of toys, I am examining how symbols are interpreted by individuals and through the lens of cultural dogma. My intention is not to promote a particular concept or ideal, but to inspire analysis and contemplation in my viewers."


McGhee has participated in exhibitions at museums and universities across the country, and her work is both nationally and internationally collected.
