Elizabeth Kinahan is a representational oil painter depicting the flora and fauna of the American west. Through passionately rendered images, she exposes the soul of each subject, and reflected within it, the soul of mankind. The work thereby creates an implied narrative, with animal as storyteller, and where man is at once hero and villain. Elizabeth received her Bachelor of Fine Art degree from the College of Saint Elizabeth in 2004. Her artwork has been exhibited extensively throughout the southwest and the east coast, and can be found in numerous collections across the United States, Australia and the Middle East. She is a co-owner of Studio & Gallery, in downtown Durango, Colorado, and works to support efforts to rescue and protect both wild and domesticated animals.
